Verso (original use): Petition in Arabic script. Somewhat rudimentary hand. Possibly to the caliph himself (al-ḥaḍra al-ṭāhira). The sender desires to be sent to Syria to fight (raghiba al-jihād) with the victorious army (...wa-yatajarrad ilā al-Shām fī jumlat al-ʿaskar al-manṣūr wa-yabdhul majhūdahu fī al-khidma al-sharīfa...). The addressee is asked to issue an order to the Kātib al-Jaysh ordering his deployment (tajrīd). Recto (secondary use): Informal note in Arabic script confirming the granting of a gift without any conditions.
