Abū l-Hasan

Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>A letter (or rather a memorandum: תדכרה) by Abū l-Hasan to his brother Barakat b. Ḵulayf. The data on the list on verso (which is part of the letter) was copied from Hibat Allah b. Ḵalaf al-Ḥamawī’s notebook. The writer complains that he couldn’t sell the resin and mentions a transport by the ship of al-Harbī, who was apparently a Christian from a Christian land. Barakat b.
