    Abstract:
    This article edits a Judaeo-Arabic letter written in the early phonetic Judaeo-Arabic spelling from the Taylor-Slechter Collection with the siglum T-S 13J8.7. This letter, which is a personal letter on paper from a merchant whose goods have been stolen from his shop adds to the small corpus of letters in this early orthography. Besides this Judaeo-Arabic letter, the paper also contains Hebrew and Aramaic abbreviated liturgical citations. Besides an edition of the text with translation and reproduction of the photos, this paper also discusses the question of whether it is useful to think of archaic features in letters such as these as being due to Classical Arabic influence.
