        Typed Letter Signed, in German, oblong 8vo, Geneva, Dec. 16, 1903

      An extremely early letter to a Doctor. [Moses Gaster, chief rabbi of the Sephardic communities in England from 1887-1918] "I still haven't had word from you about the university courses, as you so kindly promised. But, the matter does not allow for delay, so I ask you to be kind enough to let me have it as soon as possible. The delegation of Russian A.C. members is going to Vienna next week. We must not expect peaceful results from these negotiations, though. In Vienna they already know about the Kharkov decisions and there is absolutely no inclination to make any concessions at all. Thus a struggle will follow, and in the very near future. We must proceed as quickly as possible in order not to be caught unaware again. At the request of the Russian A.C. members I sent Mr. B. Mossinson, a good public speaker, to London yesterday to launch the campaign there. He will allow himself the liberty of paying you a visit, dear doctor, and I ask you, for the sake of the cause, to support him. You may find it appropriate for him to take part inthe Johnston meeting on the 20th. In any case, he is completely at your disposal." In conclusion Weizmann thanks Gaster for a "Speedy reply regarding the university courses and the propaganda effort .." Signed, "Dr. Ch. Weizmann."
