<p style='text-align: justify;'>Recto: letter from Meʾir Ibn al-Hamdānī to Maimonides, asking him to accept his son as his assistant for the study of medicine. He stresses that he dared to apply to him only because he had heard that Maimonides’ nephew, who had worked under him thus far, now practiced elsewhere.
