khamen, who lived in regal splendor
8,270 years ago. had a day’s rest yes
terday, no work being done on the
tomb. 1 was out all day in company
with Engelbach, who succeeded me
as Inspector general of antiquities,
and made a long tour of the whole
Theban necropolis. I was much
struck by the amount of work both In
excavation and conservation carried
out under his direction.
As we rode along the sunbaked em
bankment which serves as a road to
the necropolis we encountered a roll
ing and bumping Ford car, tho first
ever seen on this ancient soil, which
proved to contain an excavating
party, Mr. Carter. Mr. Burton and Mr.
Lucas, on their Jolting way down to
the river to spend a quiet day at the
■Winter Palace Hotel, on the other
side of the Nile. On their return at
sunset I met them again, surrounded
I by an admiring crowd of tourists and J
about to bolt back to the peace of
their house among the desert hills.
Open Chamber Soon.

I has kept his temper admirably In
I often trying circumstances. It is no

I one’s shoulders.
Most antiquities from the main
chamber have now been removed to
the workshop and the way is nearly
clear for the opening—soon after Lord
I Carnarvon’s arrival this week end—of
the sealed chamber where the royal
mummy may lie. Besides this cham
ber there Is another slderoom full of
boxes, furniture and musical Instru
ments. hut these are not being dis
turbed at present.
What the sealed chamber contains
Is a subject of excited speculation, and
i excavators are wondering whether
I Tutankhamen alone, or his predecessor,
' Smenkhkara. is also there, for the lat
} ter's name occurs, though not promi
j nently, in inscriptions found. Most

Tomb Wm Robbed.
The tomb undoubtedly has been
robbed and a few years later tidied up
by priests or necropolis officials, and
these pious personages have evidently
gathered up the royal linen and orna
ments scattered about by thieves and
crammed them back hurriedly into
boxes and caskets.
There Is a general feeling of disap
pointment so far that the tomb has not
provided much new historical informa
tion, but all agree that artistically,
many of the objects are astonishing.
Mr. Carter Is a very tired man, and as
he left the Terrace Hotel, where the
hand was playing and fair ladles were
sipping tea, to return to those silent
