Note reporting on commercial activities. In Judaeo-Arabic. Mentions oil (zayt) and spices (? asqāṭ) and three ships soon to set sail for Sicily, "and you know best about the spices of Sicily." Some commodity was deposited with a distinguished man (rajul jalīl al-qadr), "and when he opened it for the buyer and it came out in this shape, he was embarrassed... and I was embarrassed even more... He said, 'I will not buy this from you(?), this is only fit for the Jews'... I said to him that I purchased it from a Persian/foreigner...." Needs further examination.
