Description

Letter of appeal for charity. In Judaeo-Arabic. The sender complains that Sayyidnā al-Rayyis and Abū Man[ṣūr?] al-ʿAfīf have cut off the payments with which they used to support the family in the lifetime of the sender's father al-Shaykh al-Faḍā'il. (The latter used to give 1/2 dirham per head.) The addressee is asked to approach them and ask them to restart the payments. On verso there is Hebrew alphabet practice.
