Letter in Hebrew, late and beautifully written, to a communal leader. The writer seems to be a woman (although the letter has מתנפל and not מתנפלת). She has a daughter for whom she cannot provide a dowry. She asks the recipent for help. The response should be sent to Shemuel Virgash (שמואל וירגאש ) who is "the father of widows and orphans and is like a brother to me." The writer is a widow named Simha, and her duaghter is Rahel. יוסף טורישאקס is also mentioned.
