Verso: Autograph order in the hand of Avraham Maimonides. Abū l-Majd is to give 9 dirhams to 'al-Talmid al-Ajall al-Raṣuy' out of the rent of the compound. He explains: "aid for a deserving traveler." T-S K25.240 consists of small written orders, partly in Hebrew and partly in Arabic script, for monthly payments, made out of the rent-revenue from the pious foundation (waqf) 'Compound of the Poor' or from the pious foundation made by the physician al-Muhadhdhab. All dated orders are from spring and summer, 1218.
