Letter CUL Or.1080 J209



Letter fragment, probably. The last two lines and three signatures survive. The format looks like a legal document, but it ends "from those who wish you peace/health," suggesting that it is rather a letter. Dated Heshvan 5358 AM (שנת משיח) = October/November 1597 CE. There is a postscript (or response?) underneath, regarding the sum of money that must have been the subject of the letter.
