Mevoraḵ b. Saʿadya]. Šela mentions various rumours that had been spread about him, and asks the Nagid to intervene against two silk dyers who have been troubling his brothers for the last three years.

He is happy to hear that Mevoraḵ and his son will be travelling from Cairo to Fusṭāṭ for the upcoming festivals. Written during Mevoraḵ’s second term as Nagid (1094-1111 CE). Address on verso.</p>
