<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Samuel b. Judah ha-Bavli to Beraḵot he-Ḥaver. Samuel writes that after searching the book dealers of Egypt for rare titles, he learned in Alexandria that the Greeks had many schools with fine scholars, and so he has made up his mind to go on to Thebes and Salonika in Greece after Passover. First, however, he will come to Fusṭāṭ to collect the books (the Hidāya of Baḥyā and the Ḥāwī) that he had ordered. Ca. 1130s CE.</p>
