Description

Business memorandum in Arabic script. Reporting on the arrival and shipment of different loads, including firewood. May mention the town of Minbāl (l. 3). Mentions 30 loads (of coral?), whose shipping costs 3 1/4 dirham per load, whereas the firewood costs 2 dinars per load. The boats are getting mired in the water and need more buoyancy. The addressee is told to send the rest of something. On verso there are Hebrew jottings (liturgical?). Needs examination.
