More Letters of Hazan de Sola

In 1959 the present writer was privileged to deliver as his presidential address a paper on ‘Haham Meldola and Hazan de Sola’, pub? lished in Transactions XXI, pp. 1-38. As an appendix to that paper he attached a bunch of sixteen letters from April 1818 to September 1820, representing the correspondence, partly translated from Dutch, between the young Hazan David de Sola and his aged father in Amsterdam. These letters were kindly donated to the Spanish and Portuguese Synagogue, Bevis Marks, by the family of the late Mrs Belle de Sola. Since the original gift of sixteen letters a further batch of 16 letters has now been added, which had become separated accidentally from the main collection, and sent to Canada, whence they were kindly returned by Mrs Evelyn Miller.
