Letter: Bodl. MS Heb. d 68/105

Letter Bodl. MS Heb. d 68/105


Letter addressed to al-Rayyis Abū l-Najm and/or Hillel ha-Sar and/or Yehuda ha-Sar. In Judaeo-Arabic. The writer reports that he met with the addressee's cousin (ibn ʿamm ) al-Rayyis Abū Manṣūr and complained about his difficult circumstnaces. The whole letter has the feel of a letter of appeal for charity, but it seems somewhat more complicated than the writer asking for money. (Information in part from Amir Ashur and from Goitein, Med Soc II, pp. 228–29)
