Letter T-S NS J248



Letter from Abū l-Faraj to R. Eliyya or to [...] b. R. Eliyya. In Judaeo-Arabic. The writer is distressed. He had sent a letter with Ṭāhir, to be given to Menaḥem, to be given to the addressee. He tells the addressee not to give his response to Ṭāhir, lest it fall into the hands of someone other than the writer. (This sentence could also be read, "do not give it to anyone except Abū Ṭāhir," but in that case the word לשיך should have been spelled ללשיך.) The writer alludes to a distresing matter involving his elder son Yūsuf. ASE.
