Letter from Yūsuf, presumably in Fustat, to his 'brother' Zakarīya b. al-Rayyis, in Fuwwa. In Judaeo-Arabic. The letter is to be delivered to Yūsuf the tax farmer of Fuwwa, who is to forward it to the intended recipient. The letter contains a rebuke for the addressee who left before the holidays instead of staying as everyone urged him. In the meantime, it seems a letter has arrived that demands an urgent response. Everyone is distressed on account of the addressee's illness. Bū l-ʿIzz al-Ghāsūlī brought a letter and three dirhams. ASE.
