Letter from Peraḥya b. Yosef Yiju to Abū l-Fakhr Seʿadya [b. Avraham Ibn al-Amshāṭī]. In Hebrew (for the introduction) and Judaeo-Arabic (for the body). This is an extremely deferential letter thanking Abū l-Fakhr for helping Peraḥya's son Yosef 'and his orphan girl,' in the same way that Abū l-Fakhr had helped Peraḥya himself in the past. Information from Friedman and Goitein, India Book III, 41–42 n. 40.
