NOTES ON SOME CONTEMPORARY REFERENCES TO DR. FALK, THE BAAL SHEM OF LONDON, IN THE RAINSFORD MSS. AT THE BRITISH MUSEUM

In the course of a recent examination of the Rainsford MSS. at the British Museum I came across several references to Dr. Falk of London. By the kindness of the Rev. M. Rosenbaum I was directed to the valu? able collection of information relating to that extraordinary personage contained in the late Rev. Dr. H. Adler’s paper on ” The Baal Shem of London,” read before the Jewish Historical Society of England in 1903, and I now have the pleasure to offer these notes of my gleanings for the further information of the Society, and with grateful thanks for the help the Transactions have afforded me.1

The Rainsford MSS. in the British Museum Library comprise Nos. 23644 to 23680 in the catalogue of Additional MSS., consisting of an autobiography, correspondence, official and miscellaneous papers, including papers on Freemasonry, Magnetism, and alchemical processes, formerly the property of General Charles Bainsford.
