Description

A long letter from a Yequtiel b. Siman Tov to his mother. He intended to go from Alexandria to Constantinople, but was tempted by his brother to go to Petraz (today in Serbia) and took advantage on him. He was managed to leave this town and marry a good woman in a another town who was considered to be a virgin. Unfortunately he was discovered that she was a widow and he was fooled by the match maker. The match maker told him that he didn't fooled him, but used the Arabic term, which he understood it mistakenly. He is trying to solve this situation and cancel the marriage.
