Description

Verso: Letter in Arabic script. The Arabic document is the first page of a letter. The formulaic greetings extend to three lines from the bottom, where the writer begins to excuse himself for not appearing in person to kiss the addressee's feet. What prevented him was his illness and the fact that Cairo is "qalīlat al-khāṭir (or ḥāẓir?)"—a somewhat cryptic statement. ASE
