Letter, possibly state correspondence, in Arabic script. Chancery hand (though not the best), with widened space between the lines, and with white space used to divide sections. The ends of 9 lines are preserved. Mentions "Sayyidnā al-Ustādh" (l. 3) and amīrs (ll. 4 and 9) and Abū l-Faraj (l. 8). Reused on recto for Hebrew liturgy, including biblical verses from Nehemiah 1:6–11. Needs further examination.
