Letter from Yeshuʿa the bookseller to an unknown addressee. In Judaeo-Arabic. Dating: Likely 13th century, but this is a guess. The writer has been endeavoring to sell the manuscript on behalf of Sayyidnā, but it is impossible to find a buyer. It seems that he has an offer of 120 dirhams, so he writes to ask if he should sell it for that price; if not, he is going to return it, because he has worn himself out. The other manuscripts are also not selling well.
