Description

Letter of appeal for charity addressed to the Nagid Abū l-Faḍl. In Hebrew (for the introduction) and Judaeo-Arabic (for the body). The writer has been sick for 4 months, unable to do work. The times are difficult for everyone, even for aṣḥāb al-rasāmīl wa-l-dawālīb. This is a relatively long letter; merits further examination. (Information in part from Goitein's index card.) ASE
