Description

Two fragments of a letter probably from Yehuda Ibn al-ʿAmmānī, in Alexandria, to the cantor Meʾir b. Yakhin, in Fustat. In Judaeo-Arabic. Dating: early 13th century. Mentions the elder Yeḥzqel. Includes a request "to send whatever medicines you can for Umm Bū l-Husayn. She is in a terrible state. She became very sick, and wasted away, and died several times and came back to life." T-S AS 157.505 may also be another piece of the same letter (or else a different letter from the same sender). (Information in part from CUDL)
