Legal settlement in the hand of the addressee, written between the end of the letter and the address. The senior partner Khallūf b. Mūsā the goldsmith, who is described here as Ḥamawī, that is, native of Ḥamāh in Syria, but still as resident in Palermo, Sicily, had made Moshe Samarqandī his attorney against Yeshuʿa. The matter came before the court of Mevorakh b. Saadya, later Nagid, or head of the Jews in the Fatimid empire, but was finally settled by "elders," who took the trouble to go through all the accounts and came up with a complicated settlement. Since the draft is in the hand of Yeshuʿa, we do not know whether this was the end of the story. (Information from Goitein, Letters, p. 134.) ASE
