Credit instrument or private receipt BL OR 5561B.27



Approximately 7 lines in Judaeo-Arabic and a couple lines of writing exercises on a large, otherwise blank leaf. Perhaps a filing note or a summary of another document that was originally on a wrapper. Mentions al-khwājā Rafael al-Torjman אלתורגמאן (the translator/dragoman). The first word may be some variation of דפע "to pay" which makes sense given the mention of 50 kurush. Based on the usage of Ottoman kurush coinage (ق symbol) this note is 18th or 19th-century.
