Description

Draft of a letter from Avraham b. Natan, in Fustat, to Yeshuʿa b. Ismaʿīl, in Alexandria. Dating: ca. 1050 CE. Yeshuʿa is in Alexandria probably to welcome a relative. He ordered mats through Avraham, and Avraham sends him a folded string in the letter, to show the mats’ length. A mats maker is willing to send him a mat as an example.
