Arabic text, based on the Istanbul MS, with translation and commentary of the 9th century writer's Risalat al-Qiyan . The Epistle, which ironically purports to be a defence of the practices of singing-girls and their masters, is a vivid account, touched with humour, of this aspect of the social habits of the richer classes at that time.
