APIS Translation (English)

[X to Y,] greetings. If you are well, [it would be] as it ought. [I am well myself. I have appended for you the] copy of the letter to Pais the k[---], so that, knowing, [you may forward the boat safely as far] as its reception by [the people of Akoris strategos] of the Hermopolite (or Kynopolite). Take care also [of yourself.] (2 H.) Farewell. Year 18, Me[cheir--] (or Mesore).
