Friedmann on the loss of his son-in-law, who was to him as a son, who left life in Vienna at the age of thirty-four, on the tenth of Ziv, aftrer an operation. R. Friedmann adds that so the reader, who is not familiar with Hebrew, and may quickly go through it he has printed the eulogy in Yiddish (loshon Ashkenaz). The verso of the title page identifies the author as Bernat Friedmann, Rabbiner in der orth Gemeinde, alte Gemeinde Carei = Mare (Nagykaroly) in Latin letters. There is an appeal to the reader in Hebrew which states that R. Katz had been selected as a that past year in the place of his father-in-law, when, upon the advice of local doctors he traveled to Vienna for more expert counsel for a cruel internal illness from which he suffered. He leaves over a widow and four young children from one year to eight years old, now bereft of all. It is signed by R. Ezekiel Panet, R. Eliezer David Greenwald, R. Benjamin Focas, and R. Ben Zion Wozel. Below it is the statement that contribution smay be sent to R. Maier Paneth, primrabin Hida (Hidalmas) jid. Cluj. The eulogy follows in Yiddish in square letters in a single column.
