sculptors(crossed out) hieroglyphics(crossed out) of the tombs about the
great pyramid all the details are eminently executed
The heaven is engraved with minute(crossed out) stars; The Fox or Jackall has
significant lines within its con[t]our; The hatchets have
their handles bound with thongs as usual in the sculptures; The volumes have the
string that binds them differently(crossed out) hanging below the
roll differently placed from any example in sculptured or
painted hierogs in the tombs; The determinative for country
is studded with dots representing the sand of the mountainous
margins of the side(crossed out) valley of Egypt The sign [F35] has the
tongue and semilunar mark of the longer examples as also
the vase in the shape of the heart. The Name is surmounted
by the usual(crossed out) globe and feathers decorated in the usual way except
that the lines are more horizontal than in the sculptured examples,
and the ring of The cartouch is engraved with lines representing
a rope of(crossed out) of(crossed out) which decoration I know no(crossed out) of the line inclosing
the hieroglyphics of a royal name I know of no example but
this; the [Aa1] in the name is placed as in the tombs not in
the centre(crossed out) as of the cartouch; the chickens have their unfledged
wings The serastes its horns to be seen only with the magnifying
glass Of(crossed out) the variations in(crossed out) from the usual made of representing

'Harwell House October 21 1850
The great Sarcophagus in the Chapel
The Goddess Neith N(crossed out) Neith [X1*W24:N1] who is depicted in
full length on the inside of the upper half of the
third coffin is compounded of the hieroglyphic [V39]
in the same manner as the god [Q1\:D4\:A40], likewise depicted
full length, is corresponded of the hieroglyphic [R11].
In Sarcophagi from the necropolis of Thebes it is
usual to find the same Goddess in the likeness of a beautiful
woman, usually(crossed out), with her arms streached over the deceased
as the heavens streached(d - crossed out) over the earth. That she represents
the heavens the determinative of her name [N1] is a
voucher, and her figure [C199] in this position over astronomi
cal signs. But if other proof were wanting there is a
stone sarcophagus in the British Museum where she
is sculptured streached out, as the heavens over the
earth, and giving birth to the Planets. In the lower half
of Sarcophagi from Thebes it is usual to find an other
Goddess female figure and not the figure of a man or one(crossed out) man or god in the
likeness of a man or compounded of the [R11] as in the Hartwell
Coffin; and this goddess [X1\:H8-Q1] is the goddess of the earth. as might be naturally suppose(?) This(crossed out)
Figure(crossed out) She extends her arms up each side of the coffin as if
embracing the deceased or receiving the deceased into her bosom
That the stone Sacrophagus here quoted came from Thebes
I my self can assert being present where the officers of the
Luxor brought it out of the pit
Whence then is the great Sarcophagus in the Chapel
of Hartwell house? The answer is, most probably from(crossed out)
Lower Egypt(crossed out). Most probably from the great necropolis
of Lower Egypt there namely the Necropolis(crossed out) desert of Sakkara of Memphis. First
because Pthah of(crossed out) to whom(underlined) the sign R11 is peculiar(underlined) had a celebrated
Temple at in the city of Memphis and secondly because the hierogly
phics are of the form or style of writing peculiar to
this region of Egypt and thirdly because the form of the outer
case is of the ancient(crossed out) form [Q6] most usual from in this nearby(?)
the most ancient times to the most recent in that
district of Egypt (See ancient inscription in the same
collection)'
