Letter in Hebrew and Judaeo-Arabic. The writer is quite erudite. ('as one of the poets said....'; also correctly truncates verbs that follow 'lam,' which is unusual in documentary sources). There is a long, deferential, rhymed introduction. Cites an Arabic poem (transcribed into Hebrew script) and then a "similar" poem "which I wrote in Hebrew," then gives the Hebrew poem.
