First President of Israel
(1949-52). Typed Letter Signed in Hebrew, one page, on
the imprinted stationery of "The Jewish Agency For Palestine",

- "The Honorable Rabbi
Yitzhak Meir Levin, International Order of Agudath Yisrael, P.O.
Box 326, Jerusalem. 12/Jan/1945. Greatly Honored Rabbi, I herewith
acknowledge with thanks receipt of your letter of 22 Teveth 5705
(7 January 1945) which was included (with other mail, addressed
to) The Jewish Agency in Jerusalem. I will be happy to meet with
you and to converse/ discuss...but, I am in Rehovot practically
all the time and I don't want to trouble you to come to Rehovot.
I propose, therefore, that we meet during the time of my upcoming
visit to Jerusalem and I will let you know in advance in order
to set a time that's convenient for his honor. With blessing(s)
- Nice war-time letter, Yitzhak
Meir Levin, just a few years later in 1949 would hold the position
of Minister of Social Welfare in the Cabinet with Chaim Weizmann.
Great association. Shows normal aging and handling, a notation
on verso is transparent as viewed. Overall, in very good condition.
