Letter in the hand of Shelomo b. Eliyyahu (per Goitein) to an unidentified person. In Judaeo-Arabic. The addressee's mother and sister were involved in an affair of 220 copper dirhams belonging to the widow of Abū l-Surūr who had 'screamed' against her 'oppressor.' The qāḍī had already dealt with the matter which was a "desecration of the name of God in public" (חילול השם בפרהסיא). Information from Goitein's note card.
