First 94 words of the document:

Mecca 630
Muhammad began to prepare for a campaign. In 630,
Muhammad marched on Mecca with an enormous force,
said to number more than ten thousand men. With minimal
casualties, Muhammad took control of Mecca. He declared
an amnesty for past offences, except for ten men and
women who had mocked and ridiculed him in songs and
verses. Some of these were later pardoned. Most Meccans
converted to Islam and Muhammad subsequently
destroyed all the statues of Arabian gods in and around
the Kaaba.
