Lot 259: ALS in Hebrew, signed "D.B.G.," one page, lightly-lined, 4.5 x 8.25, February 9, 1954. In part (translated): "I have just now finished reading in the publication Jewish Spectator from January the article by Trude Weiss-Rosmarin about Maurice Samuel and his book Mr. Samuel and the Revolt of the Diaspora. It has been a long time since I have read such a Zionist, insightful and brave and honest article—both here and in the diaspora. I have not yet read Samuel's book, but I am somewhat familiar with him through his previous books, and thus I can assume the content and character of this book. But it is not Samuel's book that is of interest to me now, but this Trude, who is, apparently, the editor of the publication. Does anyone in your surroundings know this woman? Who she is, where is she from, what is her educational background, and how has she arrived at such a deep and brave Zionist understanding. What is this publication, J. Sp. What organization publishes it, what are its values and what is its distribution? I will be very grateful to you if you could advise me in this matter, or if you will be able to find one of the colleagues who will be able to address with knowledge the above-mentioned questions." Punch and staple holes to the right edge (affecting a few words), a stray ink mark, and small paper loss to lower right corner, otherwise fine condition. Excellent content from the first Israeli prime minister.
