Legal note, unsigned, beginning "Yaqūlu...": "ʿAllān b. Ḥassūn says that Abū l-Ḥusayn al-Ḥalabī has a note (ruqʿa) of [...] under the name of Abū ʿImrān worth 2 dinars. I lost it (wa-qad waqaʿat minnī) and I collected the substitute/equivalent (al-ʿiwaḍ) and released him from it. Whenever it surfaces, it is false and invalid." The dates are then specified. ʿAllān b. Ḥassūn was an India trader in the early 12th century (and the subject of Goitein's "Portrait of a Medieval India Trader"); Abū l-Ḥusayn (Yaḥyā) al-Ḥalabī was a banker (ṣayrafī), also known from several other documents from the same period.
