Translation:
To the lady my daughter Susanna from Martyrios your father. Since you sent us your letter your mother has become unwell and she could not come to you, nor had I time to come again. I have in fact written you another letter that you should come. Hurry then, when you receive this letter, you must come at once, with your husband, since your mother is very ill and wants to see you. Many greetings to my dear Antoninus and his mother and to you all. I pray for your health, dear daughter. Verso: To the lady my daughter Susanna. Martyrios your father.
