Recto: Letter in the hand of Ḥalfon b. Menashshe to his 'brother' Abū Naṣr. In Judaeo-Arabic. Mentions a previous rebuke; the arrival of the physician today; possibly medically-induced vomiting (...[isti]frāgh min kull budd allāh yajʿal al-ʿāqiba...); 20 dirhams; and something he needs. On verso there is probably the response from Abū Naṣr, stating that the order has arrived, and he was distressed at the news, and probably that he will act on it. This fragment also contains two words in Arabic script from an earlier state document, perhaps a decree.
