Contents: Letter dealing with a conflict. On the obverse the sender of the letter notes that the addressed person is angry with him but maintains he is without any bad action or thought. The reverse seems to be a continuation of the obverse and more or less follows the same lines, i.a. mentioning a false deposition or even accusation that caused some nasty moments for the sender of the letter. Mention is also made of contacting the vizier, who may do as he pleases.
