Letter from Abū l-Faḍl to his father Abū l-ʿIzz. In Judaeo-Arabic. He opens with the verse Psalms 16:8 followed by three verses of Judaeo-Arabic poetry expressing his longing. (These verses are discussed in Mohamed A. H. Ahmed, "An Initial Survey of Arabic Poetry in the Cairo Genizah," Al-Masāq (2018).) Either the bottom half of the letter was torn away, or the letter was never finished. On verso there are various jottings, including some accounts in Arabic script.
