A former pupil goes off the rails and gets lost in drink; his teacher tries to bring him back.

After completing his education, a young scribe might take a job in a temple, government office, or work team. But this time, the student went off into some wayward behaviours. Writing a stern letter, a schoolmaster tries to bring his former pupil back to sobriety and good living.
