iim who would anoint himself therewith.There was given to me the mansion of a lord of serfs, whichhad belonged to a royal friend. There many excellent thingswere in its buildings ; all its wood was renewed. There werebrought to me portions from the palace, thrice and four timeseach day; besides the gifts of the royal children, always,without ceasing. There was built for me a pyramid of stoneamongst the pyramids. The overseer of the architects mea-sured its ground ; the chief treasurer wrote it; the sacredmasons cut the well; the chief of the laborers on the tombsbrought the bricks; all things used to make strong a buildingwere there used. There were given to me peasants; there wasmade for me a garden, and fields were in it before my man-sion, as is done for the chief royal friend. My statue wasinlaid with gold, its girdle of pale gold ; his majesty caused itto be made. Such honor is not done to a man of low degree. May I be in the favor of the king until the day shall comeof my death.
