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 from Texas, US. He explains that he had been travelling for work to buy merchandise when he was struck down by a fever. He states that business is bad but promises to send presents for the children when he arrives in New York as they will be more affordable there. Katrina Sa'ade had moved back to California in early 1934 with Fred and by this point Mary had subsequently joined them.
