Description

Recto: Letter in Judaeo-Arabic. The handwriting looks like one of the Mosul Nasis active in the 13th century. The sender says that he (or she?) received word suddenly that the amir is coming for some work tomorrow, which alarmed him because he has not prepared for such a visit. "By my life, if he comes, we will move our אסבת (hides? baskets?) inside, and he/it will be in the place where we are" (maybe they will give their own sleeping quarters to the amir?). He has obtained some chickens but doesn't know where to send them for them to be prepared. He asks the addressee to tell him where to send them. (Information in part from CUDL) Verso: Letter in Judaeo-Arabic. Fragment (bottom five lines). Faded, and difficult to understand any of the content.
