Weiz­mann note un­sold

The Jewish Chronicle - - News - BY ROBYN ROSEN

A LET­TER by the first pres­i­dent of Is­rael, Chaim Weiz­mann, has failed to find a buyer at an auc­tion.

The let­ter, which was es­ti­mated to reach up to £1,500 at a Blooms­bury Auc­tion sale, was writ­ten to Lady Lloyd Ge­orge, the first fe­male MP and daugh­ter of the First World War prime min­is­ter, Lloyd Ge­orge, on Oc­to­ber 26 1945.

Mr Weiz­mann said he was “deeply moved” by a let­ter Lady Lloyd Ge­orge had writ­ten in the Daily Tele­graph.

His let­ter read: “In th­ese dark days, when we are as­sailed on all sides by dif­fi­cul­ties, such ev­i­dences of con­tin­u­ing friend­ship and un­der­stand­ing are dou­bly pre­cious to us.”
