Description

Letter, faded, in eloquent Hebrew. Mentions "my brother R. Ḥalfon" arriving in the city and bad news that struck the writer to his very core, perhaps the death of another brother of theirs (recto, l. 5; and then "my brother Ḥalfon was in mourning" three lines from the bottom). Verso refers to being in a foreign land. This is an unusual sort of letter; merits further examination. ASE.
