Letter Moss. II,183.1



Recto: A Hebrew letter begging for charity on Purim, invoking the tropes of hunger and nakedness. The writer suggests that the addressee himself 'or one of the gabbais' bring him the money. He sends wishes for the addressee's recovery from an illness. Verso: Another letter, in Judaeo-Arabic and in a different hand and extremely faded.
