<p style='text-align: justify;'><p>Letter from Umm Dāʾūd, in a provincial town, to her son Sulaymān al-Jamal, in Fusṭāṭ. She complains about a lack of letters from him and reports that she is fasting and crying day and night. She had traveled with her daughter and son-in-law to her present location. She would return on her own, but must stay with her daughter who is pregnant and suffering at the hands of her husband’s second wife. The writer urges her son to come and thereby ‘cool [the fire in] my liver.’ Her son-in-law had promised to bring her back to Fusṭāṭ, but when the daughter became pregnant, he said that he would never go back to Fusṭāṭ again. Address on verso.</p></p>
