1. R. ilā qāḍī Kabi Khalīl b. Khalīl.

A small book of poems by the author, with connecting prose. The first was sent to qāḍī Khalīl when he was very ill. Another was sent to heal a rift between the author and Ibrāhīm b. muʿallim Angu; another when he decided to leave Kebbi because of the Emir’s displeasure, and yet another is dedicated to the Emir of Gwandu on his arrival there from Kebbi.

MS: Kaduna (NA), 0/AR2/32 (composite file).
