Description

Letter of appeal for charity. Addressed to someone titled al-Amīniyya. Probably from a cantor, although theoretically al-Ḥazzān could be part of the addressee's name. In Judaeo-Arabic. Recto is entirely greetings and good wishes for the holiday. Verso presents the writer's case and his pressing need for money for the holidays. He sends regards to Abū l-Ṭāhir Amīn al-Dawla.
