<p style='text-align: justify;'>Recto: a letter from Maḍmūn b. Ḥasan in Aden to Abraham Ibn Yijū in India, ca. 1135 CE. This fragment is in Maḍmūn’s hand, but T-S NS J1 is a copy of the same letter written by Maḍmūn’s scribe. The letter details the misconduct of Bama, Ibn Yijū’s servant. Bama had been living quite the high life in Aden. He had found himself accommodation and ordered Maḍmūn to cover his (extensive) living expenses, but worst of all, ‘most of the time’ he has met with Maḍmūn he’s been blind drunk. Maḍmūn is disgusted by Bama’s behaviour and wonders why on earth Ibn Yijū has sent him to Aden. Verso: Ibn Yijū’s accounts in his own hand.</p>
