<p style='text-align: justify;'>Recto: draft of a letter, written by Ephraim b. Šemarya (11th century), in Fusṭāṭ, probably to the Gaʾon Solomon b. Judah, in Jerusalem, in which the writer states that, contrary to the malicious and false accusations made against him to the Gaʾon by some members of the Jewish community in Fusṭāṭ, he will indeed be sending a generous donation for the Jerusalem academy in response to a fundraising mission by the Gaʾon’s son Abraham. Ephraim also mentions that he retains the support of an influential member of the Caliph’s court, namely the Karaite David ha-Levi b. Isaac, who will also be sending a donation. Verso: letter, in Arabic. </p>
