BILBEA

(From tablet writing, Babylonian excavations of 4th millennium B.C.)


Bilbea, I was in Babylon on Saturday night.

I saw nothing of you anywhere.

I was at the old place and the other girls were there, but no Bilbea.


Have you gone to another house? or city?

Why don't you write?

I was sorry. I walked home half-sick.


Tell me how it goes.

Send me some kind of a letter.

And take care of yourself.
