The king's son, vigilant for his lord, favorite of the Good God, governor of the entire land of Kush, king's scribe, Mermose. He saith: "Praise to thee! O Good God! Great is thy might against him that confronts thee; thou causest them that are rebellious against thee to say: 'The fire that we have made rages against us.' Thou hast slain all thy enemies, overthrown beneath thy feet.
