<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter sent to a Nasi in Acre, 13th century. The writer is in straitened circumstances, having been attacked by camel drivers. He asks for help. The writer refers to a judge Peraḥya and someone called Yefet (perhaps Peraḥya b. Samuel and Yefet b. Elijah, two officials known to have been based in Acre). A postscript in a different hand and ink refers to Moses ‘at the synagogue’ and Yeḥiʾel. </p>
