Letter from a scribe. In Judaeo-Arabic. He reports that after much travail he has finally completed a Torah codex (muṣḥaf) "in the name of the Nagid." This muṣḥaf has no peer, except for the one which he had written for the addressee himself. He had been working on it for many nights. Abū l-Munajjā will deliver it together with letters, and the addressee is asked to give it personally to the Nagid. (Information from Goitein's note card.)
