The Jewish-Arab Business letters from the Cairene Genizah are looking very different in Hebrew script. But their language is directly parallel to that of Quṣayr documents. Almost all the received Genizah documents are recognized in full text in Princeton Genizah Project and Friedberg Genizah Project. Apart from the documents, the thesaurus d'épigraphie islamique ( helps in reading of letter writing of course only limited, but it includes inscriptions. The original text of the chapter is in German.
