Letter in Arabic script. Nearly completely preserved. The address is faded, and the names are difficult to read. Dating: Likely 12th or 13th century, based on hand and format. Reports on "the old man and the old woman" (al-shaykh wa-l-ʿajūz); reports on the price of silk in Fustat; the sender offers to come out to the addressee's location (recto, upper margin). Needs further examination.
