Provides a summary of the scope (such as, time periods, geography) and content of the unit of description.

Handwritten draft letter by John Cavafy to his brother, George Cavafy, on four sheets, the first, third and fourth of which are numbered. John informs him of the departure of their brother, Aristeidis, for Marseilles after having abandoned his wife, and of the relevant letters sent by Aristeidis to members of his family. His wife’s family (Vouros) threatens to take harsh measures if Aristeidis does not return soon. The sender asks George to convince Aristeidis to return to Egypt as soon as possible. The draft letter has been written by at least two different persons, but not by John (seemingly by some of his brothers). Even John’s name on the last page is written in a handwriting different from his own. (Alexandria)
