<p style='text-align: justify;'>Begging letter from ‘a man from the people of Qayrawān’, describing how he came to Fusṭāṭ in order to get financial support from his relative Nahray (b. Nissim, active 1060-1097 CE). The writer had also turned for help to Abū Zikrī, which incurred the wrath of Nahray, and the writer promised henceforth to rely only on Nahray. But since then Nahray has only paid him the insufficient sum of 15 dirhams over the course of eight months. Now the writer is too ashamed to address Abū Zikrī, and he has therefore written this note to a third potential patron to solicit support.</p>
