Letter from an unknown writer, in Safed, to Yosef Mataron (מאטארון), in Fustat/Cairo. In Ladino. Mentions the Ottoman coin para. The writer reports that the addressee's son Eliezer is in Tripoli, which he knows because he received a letter from Eliezer the same day the caravan from Egypt arrived. The letter deals with business matters and shipments received, some of which were unsatisfactory: "y como me mandastes aquella ropa tan desbaratada"; in fact the writer seems quite annoyed at the merchandise he is receiving and says he does not understand what he is supposed to do with it. Needs further examination.
