Sun June 9. [9 June 1907] Did very little today. We opened out a few
inscriptions in the morning and I began making a cast of a lintel in 14.
After lunch just as I was going out to work appeared the Kaimakam of
Karaman [(Laranda)] with Husni Pasha, whom I was very glad to see
again, and a cheerful little official of the town. They were most
pleasant and stayed a long time. Husni Pasha is particularly
agreeable. When they had gone I had only time to finish my cast
while Sir W [Wiliam Ramsay] dug out a few inscriptions on 2. Came
back to the tents and helped Fattuh to put up the kitchen awning just in
time for we got it up just before a driving thunderstorm. Splendid
effects of cloud on Mahlech.
