Letter copy. In Hebrew. Attributed to Yehuda ha-Levi on the final page. Mostly consists of extremely poetic praises for the addressee ("whose like has not been seen in Spain") and self abasement. The writer explains why he is unable to fulfill a certain request that was made of him. Unclear if the original writer is identical with the famous Yehuda ha-Levi; evidence in favor of the identification is that he does not seem to have his father's name or other names listed (which would be necessary for a less famous Yehuda ha-Levi), the reference to Spain, and the caliber of the Hebrew prose. But needs examination.
