Description

Letter from Yefet b. Menashshe to his brother Abū l-Surūr Peraḥya b. Menashshe. In Judaeo-Arabic. Mentions: that Peraḥya's letter arrived with ʿAyyāsh; 17 dirhams; a woman (their mother?) praying for Peraḥya; a (capitation tax?) receipt (barāʾa) for 1/2 dinar; the addressee's preoccupation on account of a woman; Abū Saʿd; the government (al-ṣulṭān); and someone living in Fustat. The letter also deals with a fūṭa garment and some dirhams; something was intended for the addressee's mother. The crux of the matter is that the addressee should send something, because ʿAyyāsh says that he forgot that thing with Khiyār. There is also a qāḍī mentioned near the beginning of the letter. Yefet refers to "your mother and your sisters" and sends greetings to Abū Saʿīd (probably Ḥalfon) and Sitt Naʿīm. Join: Oded Zinger. Needs further examination now that the letter is complete.
