The images are a digital reproduction of a handwritten letter and accompanying translation donated by Kathy Sa'ade Kenny.
In this letter Katrina Sa'ade writes to her husband Suleiman Farhat. At this stage Katrina was living in Ramallah with Suleiman's parents and Mary, Fred and George (Katrina and Suleiman's children) and Suleiman was living in California managing their shop. Katrina writes earnestly about her money troubles, that she has had to pawn her jewellery and asks Suleiman for financial assistance. She also notes that she began writing lessons herself but that this is now on hold.
