The writer requests payment of 55 dīnārs to a certain مطير or his messenger to cover the price of aloes-wood for fragrance (فى ثمن عود للطيب). Closes with the same blessings as it began with, and finally ends with the phrase وكتب بخطه 'and he wrote it with his hand'. <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(2);return false;'>Verso:</a> Traces of the address of the letter on the recto.
