Letter: Stras. 5138/23

Letter Stras. 5138/23



Most of an eloquent letter of appeal in rhymed Hebrew addressed to Abu l-Faraj Amram b. Levi. The body of the letter begins about 2/3 of the way down, after a poem and some flattery. No actual specifics are given, just that the writer is poor and wretched and is a stranger in this land, separated from his family, dwelling in a desolate place. ASE.
