1To my mother Qawîlyah. I have blessed [ you to DN (?)]
2I send word to you (f.s.) /(about) a sheep.\ Now, indeed notice (that)
3Npnˀ the sheppard of Seḥmerê the bene-
4factor of you all is coming (to) Syene with the sheep
5to sell (it). Go (and) attend (f.s.)
6to him in Syene, to-
7day. Should you shall serve
1[him we]ll in Syene, he shall do (the same) for me.
2[h]e [is coming], indeed, tomorrow to go
3[to] my house. He should give you (f.s.) 1 goat before
4I reach you (f!.s). Now, see (to it) that a good (thing)
5(is) done for him. Indeed, they are hungry ones!
6Certainly, giv[e] (f.s.) bread, even flour,
7to him, and inquire of him
8saying, "this?" (and) you must do (it).
