Letter from an Alexandrian trader who is on a journey, possibly in the Persian Gulf, to a family member. The writer wants to visit Baghdad and Ezekiel’s tomb before returning home, and mentions people including Manṣūr and Sālim. The letter continues onto verso, where there is also an astrological table in Arabic script. (Information from CUDL.) See also Goitein's attached notes.
