Letter from Shemarya to his brother Yaʿaqov. Written in non-fluent Hebrew (e.g. uses אהיה as a copulative when there is no need; and more). The writer excuses not having written before, because he had suffered a five month illness of נפלות (perhaps to be read נפילות and understood as epilepsy). But God sent him health. He is worried about his brother because he hasn't heard from him in a year and a half. The brother had sent with the wife of Yona a גלילי כיפוכניכו garment (? perhaps this is Greek, and Shemarya is Byzantine. It is vocalized in the document). Shemarya heard that the 3 dinars he had sent his brother never arrived. He mentions R. Mikha'el. Needs further examination.
