Letter T-S 12.522



Perhaps three letters of recommendation for Yaʿaqov b. Yehuda. The first was written in Istanbul and signed by Nissim Yaʿaqov [...]. The second is difficult to read; the writer's name may be Gavriel. The third was written by Hayyim David Hazzan, the Hakham Bashi of Jerusalem, 1861–69. His large blue seal in Arabic, Hebrew, and Latin characters is preserved next to his signature. Underneath one of the other two entries (it seems the second one) is a different Hakham Bashi seal in Arabic and Hebrew characters. The date is 1864 according to the Worman catalog. ASE.
