Letter from a certain Nissim to his sister. In Judaeo-Arabic. In an unusual format, with the lines downslanting rather than upslanting, and the left margin used for overflow instead of the right margin. The last line of the letter is written upside down in the upper margin, and there is a (sadly faded) address on verso. Also on verso there is a Hebrew literary text. Dating: Possibly 11th century. The sender is distressed that Salmān stopped talking to the addressee and didn't marry her (? mā dakhala ilayki). Mentions "fī l-madīna" twice in line 11. Needs further examination.
