Letter in Arabic and Hebrew script dated 438/1046. The opening politesse consists of many lines in Arabic script in a calligraphic chancery hand with wide line-spacing. When the letter switches to Arabic script, it is to discuss a matter concerning some enemies of the writer and addressee. Meira Polliack, "Dual Script Mixed Code Literary Sources from the Cairo Genizah," Intellectual History of the Islamicate World 7 (2019): 340-41 contains a careless edition of the Arabic and errors in the Judaeo-Arabic, the readings in PGP edition are preferable.
