Description

Letter from Yefet b. Menashshe to his brother Peraḥya b. Menashshe. In Judaeo-Arabic. Large fragment (missing mainly the upper right corner of recto). There are greetings for the high holidays. He thanks Peraḥya for the 10(?) dirhams that he sent for their mother, who thanks and prays for him (cf. T-S 13J22.29). The gum (ṣamgh) has arrived. Mentions incense (nidd/nadd). He refers in vague terms to some good news or advice and urges Peraḥya to act on it.
