APIS Translation (English)

... You know that I am unable to write my mother or my father. You wrote to me about the plunder: I am watching for an opportunity. The 740 (drachmas) which you gave Herieus he never gave either to my creditors or to me, so I write to tell you. I have given to Harpecheimis three rings (?) to give you and to Totoes a stick for my father. As for my own affairs I have a great deal to write to you about my straitened condition. I was deeply grieved to hear about the case of Ptolemaios. So do you look after father and mother ... Goodbye. The 8th (?) year �
