Recto: probably a letter in Ladino. Verso: draft of the beginning of a Judaeo-Arabic note to Abū Saʿd b. Moses, expressing the writer’s desire to see him, followed by a short text concerning circumcision.
Recto: work on calendar reckoning mentioning the maḥzorim, the moladot and the different kinds of Hebrew year; names of the months of the year and the numbers of their days in Ladino are written vertically on the leaf. There are also a few draft lines of some phrases contained in the petition that appears on verso, and a list of figures in the marginalia, as well as an endorsement of the petition that appears on verso. Verso: petition to Saladin from ʿAbd al-Bāqī b. Yaḥyā, the Jew, a resident of Malīj, in the province of al-Ḡarbiyya, in the Delta. Ca. 564-589 AH (= 1169-1193 CE). ʿAbd al-Bāqī b. Yaḥyā complains about the tax collectors, who forced him to leave his family and job and to work for them, and asks for the production of a rescript that would allow him to go back to his town and family. Arabic on recto: answer to the petition maintaining that since ʿAbd al-Bāqī b. Yaḥyā had some experience as a tax collector, he could not avoid this service.
