Letter ENA 2742.2


Letter from Wafāʾ b. Abū l-Faraj to a dignitary. In Hebrew and Judaeo-Arabic. Consists entirely of poetic expressions of longing and honor. On verso: "The reason for this haste in this correspondence is that I have hired (passage) and am coming down tomorrow God willing." Also on verso, at 90 degrees, in a different hand: names in Judaeo-Arabic along with mention of various animals and agricultural goods. A list of tax farmers? Needs further examination.
