Cairo Genizah : Letter

Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Recto: part of a letter to Abū l-Barakāt b. [...], who also possesses the titles Sar Menuḥa and Sar Šalom. The writer wishes the recipient (whom he addresses as ‘my lord, the elder’) well and hopes that he will recover from his illness. The body of the letter concerns a matter of marriage, with mention of a divorce deed (geṭ), but most of the text is missing. The town of Ṣahrajt (possibly where the letter originates) and Joseph b. Azhar are mentioned. Verso: the end of a letter, but the handwriting is slightly different from that on recto. It is followed by two lines of Arabic. Probably 11th-12th century. </p>
