Letter addressed to Abū Ibrāhīm Isḥāq b. al-[...]. In Judaeo-Arabic, with the address in Arabic script. It has a typically sephardi layout (cf. the letters of Yehuda ha-Levi). Apparently dictated to a scribe named Yaḥyā (probably a family member, who sends greetings in the first person in the margin, l. 7). Mostly containing regards to family members such as Abū Isḥāq, Sitt al-ʿUlamā, and the addressee's son Avraham. The sender has heard no news of the addressee except in one letter in the hand of Yaʿqūb b. Abī l-[...].
