Letter in a Spanish hand to R. Yiṣḥaq al-ḥaver al-jalīl. The sender was in great anxiety until Abū Zekharya b. Yūnus and Abū l-[...] al-Khaybarī reported about the addressee's health and safety. They send him a legal query which is copied neatly (but partly effaced), in rabbinical script, on verso. A case of partnership (sharika) where one party claims that the money involved was 'salaf' not 'raʾsmāl' or ribḥ. Cf. T-S 12.286 for another Yiṣḥaq he-Ḥaver in Spain. (Information mainly from Goitein's index card.)
