The annual grant was increased to admit of additional staff being employed, as the work was greatly hindered in Upper Egypt, where the land lay under the waters of the inundation for nearly three months, and where measurements in the field were consequently impracticable from the middle of August to the middle of November. Only by working at high pressure and by adopting every device which might save time was the work completed Within the term specified.
This period corresponded, too, with one of rapid expansion in many Government departments, so that no little difficulty was experienced in obtaining employees who possessed any but the most elementary education; in fact, ability to read and write Arabic and to do simple arithmetic were the only qualifications demanded of those who were recruited for training as land-measurers. All these were Egyptians, and several English inspectors to direct and supervise were the only Europeans employed in the work of the chain survey. A few Euro peans were employed in the Central Computation Office, and others in the Drawing Office, where the preparation of topographical maps on scales of l and l was carried on, but the whole of the cadastral field work, the minor triangulation, the autographic reproduction of the cadastral maps, and most of the computation was carried out by Egyptian employees under the English inspectors.
