Recto: Order from a higher official, or a copy of one. Issuing instructions about looking after the property of 'the two noble mosques,' something to do with expenses (maṣraf), and helping a qāḍī and an ʿāmil advance the interests of the government (maṣlaḥat al-dīwān). Verso: Multiple notes in different hands, with ʿalāʾim. The first begins, "I copied the document of the sulṭān..." (presumably referring to recto). At the bottom there is the beginning of a letter to Sharaf al-Dīn. Needs further examination.
