Letter T-S Ar.3.3



Letter from Moshe ha-Kohen to Yeshuʿa ha-Sar, care of Abū l-ʿIzz in the market of the goldsmiths (sūq al-ṣāgha) in Fusṭāṭ. Mainly in Arabic script, with names, titles, and blessings given in Hebrew characters in the midst of the Arabic text. Moshe reports that al-Shaykh al-Ajall al-Sadīd b. al-Tilmīdh and his son al-Shaykh al-Muwaffaq (שמ צורו again in Hebrew characters) arrived and informed him that the addressee had left [...], and this was very distressing. The lower part of recto and the upper part of verso are lost. There are subsequent Hebrew pen trials on verso.
