Autograph order in the hand of Avraham Maimonides. Abū l-Majd is to give the bearer 30 dirhams from the waqf of al-Muhadhdhab for somebody for teaching poor and orphaned children. The late R. Yeshuʿa is somehow involved. T-S K25.240 consists of small written orders, partly in Hebrew and partly in Arabic script, for monthly payments, made out of the rent-revenue from the pious foundation (waqf) 'Compound of the Poor' or from the pious foundation made by the physician al-Muhadhdhab. All dated orders are from spring and summer, 1218. (Information from Mediterranean Society, II, pp. 420-421, App. A 48-92; pp. 449-450, App. B 39b [dated 1210-1225]; Cohen, Poverty and Charity in the Jewish Community of Medieval Egypt, pp. 218-220)
