It was decided recently by the Executive Committee of the Jewish Historical Society of England to print in its publications such original documents as came in the way of any of its Members, so that they might, in this way, be preserved and presented to the subscribers, in the hope of their being found useful by any one writing on the history of the English Jews.

few such documents, as a first instalment, are printed here. The first is a letter in French from the converts belonging to the house founded by Henry III., to his son Edward I., asking that the income granted by his father may be properly secured to them and that a warden may be appointed to look after their interests. Some day, perhaps, the answers of the King and the Chancellor to this petition may be found, and printed in a future number.
