Letter addressed to Yūsuf al-Surrī. The name Saʿīd Maḍmūn the Blind appears at the bottom of verso; unclear if this is the name of the writer. The letter is written in Judaeo-Arabic. The hand looks Yemeni. Dating: Probably Ottoman-era, based on the mention of the currency qirsh. The purpose of the letter is to inform the addressee that the money he kindly sent (or promised to send) never arrived. The writer mentions his paternal aunts Shamʿa and Turkiyya.
