Kuluma-ya is bringing you 9 textiles, Iddin-Sîn: 3 textiles; Ela refused to take textiles (for transport); Iddin-Sîn refused to take 5 (another) textiles (for transport). Why do you always write to me: “The textiles you used to send me are not good!” Who is the fellow living in your house who is decrying the textiles when they arrive before him? As to me, on my side, I try my best to make and send you textiles in order that from each caravan trip (at least) 10 shekels of silver may accrue to your house.
