מכתב T-S Ar.30.260



Letter from a man to his son-in-law. In Ladino. Dating: Perhaps on the earlier side, 16th or 17th century (based on hand and vocabulary). The left side is torn off, so the content is difficult to reconstruct. There are business instructions, perhaps dealing with jewellery (anillos + las dos piedras). The sender may also mention his daughter once or twice. Mentions the currency 'ducado' (last line of the margin). There may be a name in the lower right margin: it looks like פייגוז אבו סבאק, which may be the sender's mercantile company.
