Letter, apparently the second folio of what used to be two folios. In Judaeo-Arabic. Dealing with some business matters and containing an urgent request for the addressee to try to remember where he left the key to the chest belonging to the writer's shop. They have looked everywhere and cannot find it. It seems the mice have broken into the chest and are damaging the goods, mainly clothing (qad naqaba l-fa'ru l-ṣandūq wa-akalahu). The handwriting resembles that of CUL Or.1081 J28 (containing a similar complaint about mice). This letter also mentions business in cannabis (qunnab).
