Michaelides Fragments : Letter fragment and a short note

Michaelides Fragments

<p style='text-align: justify;'><a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(1);return false;'>Recto:</a> The opening formula is missing. The addresses are asked not to oblige the writer to speak to somebody (ولا تحوجونى الى الكلام). Mentions bedouin Arabs (الاعراب). Closing blessing contains the phrase ويكفى الموونة 'may he (God) be sufficient for the burden of trouble'. <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(2);return false;'>Verso:</a> Address is written at the top above the basmala: الى ... ابقاه الله. The text of the letter omits an opening formula. It begings: يدخل هذا الرجل الذى ... هذه الغلة بيت مظل وفرش حوله جاف 'let the man who ... this produce enter a sheltered place with dry bedding around him'. No closing formula. </p>
