<p style='text-align: justify;'>A very neatly-written begging letter to ‘my lord, the elder’, prefaced by בשם אל רחום וחנון. The writer explains that he has come from ‘a distant place’ and describes himself as a foreigner (ואני נכרי). He once was wealthy, but has now lost all his wealth. No names are preserved. Interestingly, the writer blesses the recipient with ויכפיל ממונך (rather than the usual שכר, ‘reward’). </p>
