מכתב T-S NS 305.61



Petition / letter of recommendation. In Arabic script. Dating: Perhaps ca. 13th century. From Ibn al-Miṭrān ('son of the bishop'). Seems to be recommending the bearer (muwaṣṣilhā, l. 5) for charity or some other kind of support (isʿāf... muʿāḍada...). He is described as suffering from despondency (qanaṭ, l. 7) on account of difficult circumstances. Needs further examination.
