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 his parents and Mary, Fred and George (Katrina and Suleiman's children). Suleiman was still living and working in California. He describes the inflation and high costs of merchandise in America (these were the years of the Great Depression) which have left him with debts and caused him much anxiety. He promises to send more money when he can and assures Katrina that the situation in Palestine is much better than in America.
