Recommendation letter for a widower
מכתב תעודה לאלמן
[Community - Ms.]
This listing is an independent item not part of any collection
 p., 390:245 mm., light age staining, creased on folds, ink on paper, neat Ashkenazic script, signed, sealed in wax, and dated.
Reference letter for R. Abraham Gershon Katz, widower in need of a new wife. The letter signed by three representatives of the community, R. Sussman Segal, R. Isaac, and R. Gabriel Katz, extols the prospective groom's fine qualities and recommends him highly as a pious man who will make a fine husband and father. It may well be imaged the lonesome gent over 200 years ago, letter in hand, wandering from town to town in search of a bride.
