Letter: AIU IX.B.21

Letter AIU IX.B.21



Letter in Ladino. Lines 14-15 mention one Shelomo Azulay as the recipient of another letter: "que venga un [sic] carta que mando al aḥīnu Shelomo Azulay." The usage of "aḥīnu" ("our brother" in Hebrew) could indicate familial ties with the sender and recipient yet must also be considered alternatively as a possible term of endearment in non-familial ties of friendship. MCD. Verso has been reused for various jottings, including excerpts from prayers, writing practice, and geomancy markings, some labeled with names of months.
