<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter, from the late 11th century, from a lady afflicted with a disease that has disfigured her ‘on account of my sins’ (probably leprosy), to David ‘the great Nasi, Head of the exile of all Israel’ (i.e. David b. Daniel). The lady explains that she ‘doesn’t have husband, son, daughter, brother, or sister’, and asks to be given charitable status, either in Cairo or in ‘the city’ (probably Alexandria). Opens with quotes from Psalms 20:2-3, 72:13. </p>
