Chaim Weizmann

Chaim Weizmann (1874-1952). First President of Israel (1949-52). Typed Letter Signed in Hebrew, one page, on the imprinted stationery of "The Jewish Agency For Palestine", Jerusalem, 1945. To Rabbi Yitzhak Meir Levin (member of the First Cabinet and Signer of the Israeli Scroll of Independence). Translated:
 
"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) Hayim Weitzmann."
 
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. $OLD
