<p style='text-align: justify;'>Part of a letter, c. late 1042 CE, written by Solomon ‘the lesser, Head of the Yešiva of the Pride of Jacob’ (i.e. the Gaʾon Solomon b. Judah), to a dignitary in the Jewish community in Fusṭāṭ (perhaps Abraham ha-Kohen b. Isaac), thanking the recipient for his help in securing the intervention, on his behalf, of the governor of Jerusalem and the ruler of Ramla, in a dispute with between him and Nathan b. Abraham. He also mentions Mawhūb b. Yefet. Greetings are sent to an elder ‘Head of the Congregation’, and to Abraham and elders of the congregation. With allusions to Psalms 30:9, 31:22 and Jeremiah 51:59, and with quotes from Isaiah 41:16, Deuteronomy 28:8, Psalms 116:12 and BT Beraḵot 59b. </p>
