Letter CUL Or.1081 J65



Most of a letter in Judaeo-Arabic. The writer assures his mother that he is doing well and tells her not to weep for him. He then gives orders for what should be sent to him with his maternal uncle: sums of money and goods to be collected from various individuals who are named. Only the beginnings of the lines remain on the bottom half; he refers to someone who is sick (fa-innahu wajīʿ). He sends his regards to his maternal aunts and to the wife of his paternal uncle and the whole family. He adds a postscript: "I have sent you several letters. Please ensure they reach aṣḥābunā, and read the "communal letter" (kitāb al-jamāʿah) to them on Shabbat."
