Letter addressed to Sitt Ghazāl, in Fustat. In Arabic script. The writer reports on his bad fortune since parting from the addressee(s) ("we went out naked and hungry. . . and I had no resort. . . and I saw no alternative to traveling"). He visited Sālim, who had divorced his wife who had borne him a daughter, and who did not give her even a little bit of support. The rest of the letter should be legible with effort. Complete; 20 lines on recto, 12 lines on verso, plus address. Information from Goitein's note card.
