Letter T-S 10J30.4



Letter possibly from Abū Zikrī the physician to his father Eliyyahu the judge. Written in rhymed Judaeo-Arabic, with the address in Arabic script. Goitein comments, "One hardly knows where phraseology ends and facts come in. E.g., complains about his bad salty ???." He gives a cryptic update on the (his?) mother ("not used to the state in which she is"). (Information in part from CUDL and Goitein's index card.)
