Recto: Possibly the end of a letter in Judaeo-Arabic, with a closing line in Arabic. There is also more text at 90 degrees. Verso: Letter in the hand of Ṭoviyya b. ʿEli referring to how the qāḍī ʿĪsā [..]l al-Mulk Ṣāḥib al-Tartīb known as Ibn Hārūn kisses the hands of the new Nagid, for the late Gaʾon (Maṣliaḥ?) was good to him and therefore he was good to the Jews. On "Ṣāḥib al-Tartīb" (The Master of Disposition) as a title for a qāḍī, see CUL Or.1080 J39 + BL OR 5566B.5 and Goitein, Med Soc II, p. 607 note 4
