מכתב T-S NS 305.15



Letter addressed to al-shaykh Abū l-[...] al-Yahūdī in Fustat. From his family members (maybe a brother?) outside of the capital. They urge him to come as fast as he can, because the girl (al-ṣaghīra, spelled السغيرة) is sick, with terrible boil(s) or skin lesion(s) (ṭalaʿa ʿalayhā ḥabb ʿaẓīm), and she cries day and night calling for the addressee. Mentions Yehuda Ibn al-Sofer (ابن السوفار). Mentions the addressee's mother.
