<p style='text-align: justify;'>Recto: letter, probably written by Sahlān b. Abraham, instructing his uncle, Aaron ‘the appointee’ (i.e. Aaron the cantor b. Ephraim), to attempt to make peace between Baqā [ha-]Kohen b. Joseph, and his wife Ḥusn b. Aaron, or to bring her to court. She had previously refused to appear in court, with her mother claiming that she was ill, and is thus in danger of being charged with rebellion against both her husband and the court. The letter ends with a request to send the two ṭarīs (= 0.5 dinars), a charitable donation to the synagogue, without delay, and is signed with Sahlān’s motto ‘covenant of integrity’. In the context of attempting a reconciliation between the couple, an allusion is made to Judges 19:3. Verso: part of a calendar for the year 1345 (= 1034 CE), describing when the festivals occur. </p>
