APIS Translation (English)

"Ptollas to Isas, abundant greetings and good health. Know that in the letter which I sent you, there was not included in what was written there the statement: "Give the interest to someone but not the principal." I wrote saying that it is two years since you borrowed the money, but you sent me no word. For if I had not known that you are trustworthy, I would not have lent it to you. Knowing your good faith, I gave the note to no one. If you find someone trustworthy . . . send the interest and the principal. Year 37 of Caesar, Thoth 5. Farewell."
