Letter in the hand of Yefet b. Menashshe, probably addressed to his brother Ḥalfon b. Menashshe. In Judaeo-Arabic. Fragment (lower part of recto). Mentions: the sale of something by Efrayim; something that should be sent with Ibn al-Dawāniqī(?) ('the penny pincher'); an urgent request to write to al-qāḍī al-makīn about something that will help Yefet; something "this year in al-Mahdiyya"; regards to Sitt Naʿīm (Ḥalfon's wife). This document was reused for legal jottings in the hand of Ḥalfon b. Menashshe, which mention Sutūt the wife of Khalaf b. Qashqūsh; a real-estate transaction; and a quarter of house in Qaṣr al-Shamʿ in the alley of the shop (zuqāq al-dukkān) in partnership with Aharon ha-Kohen.
