Petition from a Jewish man to a dignitary. In Arabic script. Fragment (upper left corner). Opens with two lines of grand titles for the presumably Muslim addressee (Fakhr al-Dīn Jamāl al-Ruʾasāʾ, Ṣ[...] Amīr al-Muʾminīn). and then the description of a Jewish man who is presumably in need of help of some kind. There is a single word in Hebrew in the upper margin. On verso several lines of rhymed Hebrew (including one line against gentiles). On verso there may also be the remnants of the address of the letter on recto (in Arabic script). Needs further examination.
