<p style='text-align: justify;'>Part of a begging letter, c. 1025 CE, written by Abū l-Faraj al-Ḥaver, in Tiberias, to Abū l-Ṭayyib the cantor, in which Jewish lepers, who reside in Tiberias in order to seek treatment in its hot springs, describe their symptoms, including deafness, blindness and mutilations, and ask for financial assistance from the Jewish community in Fusṭāṭ. In the main text of the letter, and in the one line of Hebrew in the address on the verso, blank spaces remain in which to insert the name of the recipient and his father. The remaining two lines on the verso are the address in Judaeo-Arabic. </p>
