Order of payment. In Judaeo-Arabic. In which Tamīm b. Yaʿaqov asks Abū Saʿīd to give Abū l-Ḥasan b. Masʿūd the price of the bundle (ṣurra) of ben or moringa (al-bān), because the latter kindly made some wine for Tamīm. Goitein's notes indicate that the use of the term "ṣurra" proves a connection to the India trade. His notes also translate al-bān as "nutmeg."
