A. Rowe to C. Fisher
November 18, 1924 (continued)

CORRIGENDA

p. 139 No.8 [t] should be [nb]
Also in translation, after words “adorer of the king” add the words “[overseer?] of clothing.”

p. 140 No.11 Add [nswt] before [mjtrt] (i.e., after rxt nswt])

p. 141 No.13 4th line of text; For [Hpt?] put [aA]

p. 144 No. 18 3rd line. Remove [ ] from the sign [r], as I now see from photo that [r] is actually in the text.

p. 151 No. 31(a) Remove [x] after [mr] and add [r] in it’s place.

p. 152 No. 31(c) “ “ “ “ “ “ “ “ “

p. 153 No. 33 Third line of translation. Add the words “forth offerings” after the word “come.”

p. 154 No. 35 The photograph gives the real meaning of the first line; it should read “Overseer of the mysteries……..[administrator] of the Southern Throne, beloved of his lord.”

p. 159 The first line of the translation (4) should read “when he journeyed to the western land…… Ankh.” (i.e., the words “(There hath” etc., be deleted.)
