-Petrie to C. H. Read, not dated but presumably 1907, 3 pages, a draft of the reply in response to Read's letter of 27-03-1907, refutes Read's statement, and to the contrary, the British were in fact 'leading the way', describes his excavations in the Palace of Apries at Memphis, has funding for excavating in Egypt for the next 5 to 10 years, and the British Society of Antiquaries need to continue its support of British excavations.

Petrie Journal 1893 to 1894 (Koptos)

-Journal letters.
-November 27, 1893, through to February 23, 1894.
-Handwritten.
-Petrie is at Koptos for the whole season where he was assisted by James Edward Quibell and Bernard Pyne Grenfell. Petrie discovered three temples and found evidence of constant occupation at the site, from the Predynastic period through to the Roman era. Petrie also discovered three Predynastic colossal statues of Min beneath a Ptolemaic pavement, one statue is now in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, and the other two are in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. Petrie's excavations at this site initiated the formation of the highly-regarded Egyptian workforce specialising in archaeological excavation and referred to as "Quftis".
-Site: Koptos (Coptos; Qift; Quft).
