Autograph order from Avraham Maimonides. Abū l-Majd is to give the bearer (also named Abū l-Majd?) two dirhams for baking matza (khabīz faṭīr) for Passover. There is one line in Arabic script at the bottom. 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.
