Description

Begging letter, probably, in elegant script informing the addressee that his brother Abū l-Baqā al-Tājir used to give charity to the writer and help his family with the capitation tax, but he has now died without a will. The remainder of the letter is missing the ends of the lines; it involves the late Abū l-Baqā's daughters and niece. ASE.
