Description

Letter from Yeshuʿa b. Yefet to two brothers, to the dukkān of Bāb al-Futūḥ, which means this was probably sent to Cairo rather than Fustat. In Hebrew (introduction) and Judaeo-Arabic (body) and Arabic script (address). One of the addressees is named Maḥāsin, and the address also contains the name الي אלכהן = Eli[yya?] al-Kohen. Only a couple lines of the body of the letter are preserved.
