Description

Letter from Mūsā, in Ṣandafā, to his brother, in Fustat. In Judaeo-Arabic, with the address in both Judaeo-Arabic and Arabic script. Written in a lovely hand, with rudimentary orthography. The sender arrived safely in Ṣandafā, but things are not going well there, and he plans to come to Fustat. There is an issue with the tax collector (ṣāhib al-kharāj)—maybe Mūsā has the tax receipts for other family members, since he offers to come quickly and bring something with him.
