Legal record (#26a). Loan contract. Dated: Monday, 14 Sivan 1467 Seleucid. Abū l-Ḥajjāj Yūsuf al-ʿAṭṭār ('the perfumer in the Alley of the Candles') owes 15 dirhams to Abū l-Barakāt al-Kohen. He will pay back 5 dirhams a week. The loan was granted against Yūsuf's release of Abū l-Barakāt and his nephew (the son of his younger sister) from all claims. It was first written that the payments were to be made via Munajjā b. Ḥātim the Parnas, but this clause was crossed out and replaced with an addendum stating that the payments would be made directly to the creditor (next record). Witnesses: Nadiv b. Seʿadya ha-Levi; Mevorakh {b. Natan}. (Information in part from Goitein's notes.)
