Weizmann sends a postcard to Mademoiselle Van Gelder in London, (translated), "Believe me I was waiting until today for the parcel to arrive. It is still not here. I assume that you took the exact address. I will send out these days nice cards. With kind regards to you and to Doctor Rappoport, whom I wrote a long letter." In very good condition, with a central vertical crease, uniform toning, a bit of light soiling, and a few corner tip dings.
