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 in California. At this stage Katrina was living in Ramallah with Suleiman's parents and Mary, Fred and George (Katrina and Suleiman's children). Katrina describes how she would like to return to him and their California home with the children. She asks Suleiman for money for food and their children's expenses and complains about the behaviour of her in-laws and the way they 'gang up' on her.
