الوصف

Letter from an unknown writer, perhaps a provincial muqaddam, to an unknown distinguished person, presumably in Fustat. In Judaeo-Arabic with interspersed biblical verses. The writer is defending himself against accusations of high-handedness and perhaps even having his name invoked in the reshut clause of documents and marriage contracts under his jurisdiction. He defends himself at some length and appears to mention Ibn al-Ṭaffāl, conceivably identical with the rival of Moshe b. Levi ha-Levi in the 1190s CE (see FOTM April 2020); however, the hand of this letter does not resemble that of Moshe or his brother Yedutun.
