Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Maḍmūn b. Ḥasan in Aden to Abraham Ibn Yijū in India, 1133. The letter can be identified as from Maḍmūn to Ibn Yijū because it is written by Maḍmūn’s usual scribe and refers to locations in India where Ibn Yijū is known to have lived. Maḍmūn offers sympathy for Ibn Yijū’s recent uncomfortable sea voyage, discusses their trade in commodities including pepper, sugar, copper, coinage, and glass, mentions the severe losses he incurred in the outfitting of a ship.</p>
