Description

Recto: Letter addressed to Avraham ha-Sefaradi. In Hebrew, often rhymed. Dating: Probably no earlier than 15th century. The writer reports on a man who wishes to marry the daughter of Avraham the Tailor and conveys some of that man's speech in this letter. It is unclear what he wants from the addressee. A learned man named Yehuda חובל is also mentioned. Verso: Alongside the address of the original letter, there is a letter in Judaeo-Arabic, perhaps the response to recto. There is also a name: Binyamin b. אנתה(?). Needs examination.
