Letter addressed to Eliyya b. Mishaʾel ha-Levi. In Hebrew and Judaeo-Arabic. The addressee is called "the mighty prince" (ha-Sar ha-Adir) and his father is called "physician" (ha-Rofe). Almost all of the text is dedicated to praises and blessings. In the remaining text the writer informs Eliyya that ever since he parted from Eliyya and left Fustat, he and his children are suffering from illness (though he may simply be referring to the heartsickness of being parted).
