Letter Lehnardt 7


Three different text blocks. (1) Recto: qinnot. (2) Note in Judaeo-Arabic possibly in the same hand as the qinnot. Abū l-ʿAlāʾ tells "my rabbi and teacher" that he sent this quire as soon as he received his letter, but the bearer was delayed. (3) Hebrew poetry/piyyuṭ in the hand of Yehuda b. Ṭoviyyahu (muqaddam of Bilbays, late 12th and early 13th century). So Yehuda was probably the addressee of the note.
