Kekandaku yang dihormati,

Lama benar tidak berjumpa kekanda di Ipoh.

Bila2 pun kalau kekanda datang ke Ipoh jemputlah ke tempat adinda. Boleh jua bermalam di sini. Kalau kekanda datang dalam minggu ini ke Ipoh harap singgah jua.

Kerana ada sedikit wang hendak adinda (tumpangkan?) kepada kekanda untuk diberi pada bonda Aishah.

Adinda akan balik ke Kuala dalam pertengahan bulan hadapan. Dan akan berjumpa anak2 adinda Azmi Adli (Anifah?) dan (Asriah?). Ayahanda Sheikh Tahir sudah balikkah ke Kuala?

Diharap pihak kekanda ada sihat belaka.

Wassalam.

Hamdan Tahir


REMARKS
  • The year 05 (2605) was the Japanese year equivalent to 1945.
  • Kuala is perhaps referring to Kuala Kangsar, as colloquially used by the locals.
  • Texts marked in red are those that cannot be confirmed.

As per my reading, both of them either Jawi or Malay in roman is correct.
