This material was brought to London by courier on October 3, 1902. See the letter from Lagrange to Wilson of the same date in the archives of the Palestine Exploration Fund. The material was subsequently returned to the Dominicans and was kept together at the École Biblique in Jerusalem until 1974. That year the drawings were lent to two Israeli visitors to the École, who said that they wished to use them for a republication or restoration project. Neither the individuals nor the valuable colour drawings have been seen again by their rightful owners (personal communication from Father Jean-Baptiste Humbert, head of Archaeology at the École Biblique, April 30, 2001).
