Abba Eban
July 16, 1948. Typed Letter Signed "Aubrey S. Eban", d. 1948, one page, 8.5" X 11", museum quality framed to 28" x 19", p. New York, on Provisional Government of Israel stationery, with printed title amended "Office of the Acting [Acting crossed out] Representative To the United Nations". Sent from 16 E. 66th St, New York, NY, Transmittal Letter is entitled "DIPLOMATIC COURIER CERTIFICATE", and reads: "July 16, 1948, This is to certify that Rabbi Wolf Gold, bearer of U.S.A. Passport No. 9510, carries with him the following sealed envelopes addressed to: Ministry for Foreign Affairs, Tel-Aviv, Israel, No. 303, All persons and authorities are requested to grant to Rabbi Wolf Gold all aid and facilities he may need or ask for in order to bring these documents safely to their destination. Aubrey S. Eban, Representative of Israel to the United Nations." Light soiling and creases do not detract, near fine.

Eban's outstanding as skills as speech maker and diplomat led to his appointment as the United Nations representative of the new government of Israel in 1948 and as its first permanent representative from 1949 to 1959. Simultaneously he was Israel's ambassador to the United States. In this dual role Eban acquired prominence as Israel's leading spokesman abroad and as one of the most persuasive orators at the United Nations. To many Jews and other Americans Eban came to symbolize Israel and its struggle to survive during the critical first ten years.
