The images are a digital reproduction of a handwritten letter and accompanying translation donated by Kathy Sa'ade Kenny.
In this letter Suleiman Farhat writes to his wife Katrina Sa'ade who was living in Ramallah at the time with Suleiman's parents and Mary, Fred and George (Katrina and Suleiman's children). Suleiman was still living and working in California at their shop. He promises Katrina and the family presents and money and reassures her that he will support her. He warns that business has been bad (America was suffering from the Great Depression) and therefore he cannot send money straight away.
