Letters. Copies. The first letter is in Judaeo-Arabic, from the Shāmiyyīn to the Miṣriyyīn. The second letter is in Hebrew, from the Miṣriyyīn to the Shāmiyyīn. Dating: Probably no earlier than 15th century. The second letter gives a detailed explanation of the intercalation of the calendar and the observation of the aviv (barley crop), meaning that the writers are probably Qaraite. The first letter indeed mentions דת בני מקרא (line 17). Needs further examination.
