Petition or report to the Fatimid chief qāḍī and chief dāʿī (القاضي الاجل المكين سيد الوزرا وتاج الاصفيـ[ـا قاضي القضـ]ـاة وداعي الدعاة علم المجد عمدة الدين امين امير المؤمنين). Refers to "al-ḥaḍra al-majīda" (al-Ḥāfiẓ?) and a letter that arrived from the "majlis al-wizāra." Few specifics are mentioned apart from blessings and flattery, but the sender emphasizes his zeal in the addressee's service (khidma) and for the establishment of the Fatimid mission (iqāmat al-daʿwa). A draft to judge by the crossings-out. Needs further examination. Reused for piyyuṭ on recto.
