1-2 - Say to Ilak-niid what Camac-b says:
3-12 - It is a journey of one month and fifteen days, and . Why on the third day of the month have you not brought your news to me at from Niqqum? I have looked out for you and your route was arranged. In question are: 4 shekels of silver for 2 yoked donkeys, 1/2 shekel of silver for 1 linen garment, 1 shekel for your rental of the boat, and 1 and 1/3 shekels for your rental of the boat. ... Your additional expenditure is not included in this total.
13-18 - I have calculated the cost of two loads of purple wool for you. The price is 1 and 2/3 2/3 of silver -- bring me the equivalent in tin. And look out for quartz (?), stone and stone. Your extra silver and the capital have been held for you and recorded on a clay tablet. From now on news should be brought about you. It is urgent.
