<p style='text-align: justify;'>The physician al-Rašīd Samuel b. Yefet grants a loan of four hundred ‘cut up’ dirhams to Abū l-Faraj, a simsār (broker) in Misr (i.e. Fusṭāṭ) and Cairo, to be paid back at the end of Tišri 1537 / end of Ramadan - beginning of Shawwal 622 (= October 1225 CE). Unfortunately for Samuel, cut up dirhams would be taken out of circulation one month after the loan was due to be repaid. The deed also states that Samuel had previously sold Abū l-Faraj sugar and sugar molasses. Signed by ʿAmram b. Ḥalfon ha-Levi and Solomon b. Nathan ha-Levi. Possibly in the hand of Solomon b. Elijah.</p>
