Inscription: (1.). . . . . . . . . . . . . . On day X] we embarked from Dahmit / (2.) and we arrived in] Sayl[a] on Thursday. We reached Fustat on Saturday evening / (3.) and the full moon appeared to us on Saturday evening in Fustat. Then we headed / (4.) for Rashid in seven days. And my rental expenses from Rashd to Alexandria amounted to / (5.) one dinar minus half a qirat. Having arrived in Alexandria, we stayed / (6.) there for a week. Then we displayed our goods (for sale) on Monday and Allah supported our display, / (7.) thanks be to Allah. Make sure, oh Abu 'l-Harith, that for my sake Yuhannis / (8.) . [. . .] the old man (shaykh) with the wheat of the mill and sift [it] and take it. And when / (9.) each one is done, then send Zayd and let him measure each on. And order Sanba / (10.) not to neglect improve the field. And if you are able to, obtain / (11.) for me the land of Bilatus b. Bihawih’s which you mentioned, (then do so) / (12.) if you think it a good idea. Or tell Yuhannis b. Sawirus (to give it to me), for he has already / (13.) promised me ten faddans. And I have received what you sent / (14.) with Abu Jum'a. I ask Allah on our and your behalf for health in / (15.) this world and the next, and may He complete for us and for you His bounty and cause us / (16.) and you to enter into Paradise through His mercy. I wrote this letter of mine to you when three / (17.) and twenty (days) had passed of Jumada I (and) twenty-six (days) of / (18.) Ba'una. And I have already sent to you with Rashid my mule (birdhawn), it being in good health / (19.) and there not being a fault in his back. So, make sure, may Allah have mercy on you, to send it back to me / (20.) one month after the pressing. And Rashid has already promised me that he will bring it to me. / (21.) So when the month of pressing will arrive, let it be fed barely however much it eats. / (22.) Give many greetings to Sanba and admonish him to take care of Dafaya? And give to Abnula, / (23.) your scribe, many greetings. / (24.) And peace be upon you and Allah’s blessings.
