Two petitions in Arabic script, which have been glued together. Reused for piyyuṭim on verso in a beautiful hand (one has the refrain El Melekh). Upper petition: From a group of merchants disgruntled about a wicked man (Sālim b. Abū X) who has somehow made traveling unprofitable for them. May be addressed to al-Malik al-Nāṣir (=Saladin?). Lower petition: Only the beginning is preserved, including the name of the petitioner: الشمري.
