Letter from Ameen Rihani to Jirji Baz, 1919 May 24


نسخة من رسالة امين الريحاني الى جرجي باز في 24 ايار 1909*. يبعث الريحاني فيها تحياته واطيب تمنياته الى باز وعائلته. كما انه يعبر عن حالة السوريين في المهجر، اميركا، ويصف "انقسامهم" ليس الحزبي (السياسي) فقط ولكن الديني ايضا - او كما دعاه الرجوع الى "التعصب الديني". ويروي الريحاني ايضا انجازاته في الاعوام الماضية مثل زواجه من سيدة اميركية، وزيارته الى اوروبا 1916-1917 وطبعه كتابين هما "زنبقة الغور" و"خارج الحريم" واحداث اخرى.

* التاريخ الحقيقي على الرسالة هو 24 ايار 1919. ولكن نتيجة استخدام الماسح الابيض اختفى رقم السنة الحقيقي في الرسالة بطريق الخطأ.
A photocopy of a letter from Ameen Rihani to Jirji Baz, dated May 24, 1919. Rihani sends his greetings and best wishes to the Baz family. He expresses the situation of Syrians abroad in regard to politics and society, and describes them as "divided" not only according to political parties but also to sects - he calls it "Religious Sectarianism" or "Religious Intolerance". Rihani also tells Baz what he achieved for the last few years including his marriage to an American lady, his visit to Europe in 1916-1917 and publishing two of his books "Zanbaqat alGhor" (The Lily of the Ghor) and "Kharij Al-Hareem" (Out of the Harem) and other events.
