Michaelides Fragments

<p style='text-align: justify;'><a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(1);return false;'>Recto:</a> Letter addressed to a woman (indicated by the faminine form of the verbs). The sender is probably also a woman. Text opens after basmala: جعلت فداك و اطال الله بقاك واتم نعمته عليك وزاد فى احسانه. Main body of text opens on a new line. The writer reqeusts the addressee to send a box to put clothes in since the writer fears that her clothes may be stolen. The writer will purchase a lock: احب ابقاك الله توجهين الى باصندوق حتى اجعلفيه ثيابى وافعله علوة فانى اخاف ان يسرق ... ثيابى وانا احب ان توجهين حتى اشترى قفل واقفله. Note the <i>sriptio plena</i> of the short vowel of the preposition in باصندوق, which corresponds to <i>bi-ṣundūq</i> in Classical Arabic. <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(2);return false;'></a></p>
