This image is a digital reproduction of a handwritten letter (with accompanying transcription) donated by William Kattan.
The letter is from Victoria Giries Kattan to her brothers in Sudan, Habib Giries Kattan and Khalil Giries Kattan. The letter was probably written in December 1923 when Victoria was still living in Bethlehem. On 24 June 1924 she married Nicola Hirmas in Bethlehem and shortly after went to live with him in Chile for the rest of her life.
This letter exists as part of the Kattan Family Letters collection within the William Kattan project of the Planet Bethlehem Archive.
