Description

Letter in Judaeo-Arabic. The writer asks for a copy of Saadya Gaon's tafsīr of Ezra and Daniel or his tafsīr of Proverbs and Job or one of his commentaries ("parārīsh") on the Torah. He doesn't want it to be like the tafsīr of Psalms, which was written in a lousy hand (ghaliq al-khaṭṭ). The addressee might borrow these books from a friend. The writer's wife and 'mawlā' (father?) send regards. There is a marginal note that ends "if _____, do not send me anything."
