29. 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?        5
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.
