Sic Transit Gloria Mundi

This is a fragment of an autograph responsum of Maimonides that appeared on line at the Taylor-Schechter Geniza Site. What's striking about it is that despite the owner decided to use the blank space after the Rambam's signature to add some jottings. I'm sort of bemused by this, as whenever I see an autograph of the Rambam, my reaction is always to get weak in the knees.

(Thanks to Manuscript Boy for the heads up.)
