Letter: AIU XII.118

Letter AIU XII.118



Recto: A brief note in Arabic addressed to David ben Naʿim and signed by [...] ʿUmar [...] Nāẓir al-Amwāl. There are also accounts/sums at the top of the page, naming Ḥasan al-Rashīdī as the party in some transaction, perhaps a rent (ujra) payment. The note is dated 7 April 1821 (4 Rajab 1236). The format is the same as AIU XII.106, from 6 months later, and involving different people. Verso: In Hebrew letters, presumably in the hand of David ben Naʿim or an assistant: "Ḥasan al-Rashidi" and "Rajab."
