Letter T-S 24.61



Letter of condolence on the death of the Nasi and Rayyis Sar Shalom (ll. 7, 38). Addressed to another Nasi (al-Rayyis al-Dā'ūdī), with blessings for his son Abū l-Ḥasan. In Hebrew and Judaeo-Arabic. It seems that the sender is asking the addressee to convey condolences on his behalf to al-Shaykh al-Thiqa, to Abū Isḥāq and his sons, to the dear brother Abū l-Barakāt al-Ṭabīb and his mother Sitt ʿArīb(?), and to the entire family of the late Rayyis (or of his widow?).
