Description

Letter, possibly official. In Arabic script. Five partial lines with fragmented baselines. Refers to equipment (fī l-ʿudda) and two devices (jihāzayn). Contains a suʾāl clause (fa-yasʾal dhālika minhu, unless this actually reads fa-yatasallam dhālik minhu). Mentions someone's zeal in serving (jamīʿ mā lahu min ḥusn khidmatih, unless the phrase actually reads "sayyarnā jamīʿ mā lahu min ḥaqq khidmatihi" and means "we/I have sent everything which is due on account of his service"). The penultimate line ends with an inshallāh. Cut and bound in association with Hebrew script on verso.
