Description

Letter from Khalaf b. Musa, probably from Mahdiyya, to Yusha b. Isma’il al-Makhmuri, Fustat. Dated September 8, 1051. The writer mentions goods that he bought and shipped. It seems that there is tension between the business partners, but they keep the business as usual. The goods are mainly linen, spices (pepper and others), and textile. Also mentions a Jewish sailor.
