P. OIM 19422

“A communication of the humble servant Iwefaaw, son of Horneferkheby unto Thoth, Twice Great, Lord of Hermopolis: ‘My great Lord; oh may he live as long as Pre. From year 11, the month of Mecheir, to this day I have been doing the work of The Ibis. I left my (former) work, (and) even though I like the work for which I came to The Ibis, I (now) have no human master. If the heart be stout, one will be protected in the presence of Thoth, Twice Great, Lord of Hermopolis! I pray because of Pashertaiht, son of Mentuhotep. He is not accustomed to do any work for The Ibis except to eat its food, nor does he even have a guard kept over it. He has been doing me violence since year 17. He has stolen my money and my wheat. He has had my servants slain. He has stolen for himself everything that I possessed. His heart … If the heart be stout, one will be protected in the presence of Thoth, Twice Great, Lord of Hermopolis! Pashertaiht, son of Mentuhotep, he has stolen from my life, (for) he has cast me out of my stipend, which he has made over to himself by law. [Many] things depart into his hand, although they come to The Ibis. Let me be protected from Pashertaiht, son of Mentuhotep.’ Written by the humble servant Iw-f-aaw, son of Horneferkheby in year 20, the month of Phamenoth.” – P. OIM 19422
