Letter on official stationery, handwritten and signed by Rabbi Tzvi Hirsch Ferber. Rabbi Ferber, in his inimitable way with words, writes to his friend, "I left Eastbourne yesterday with its masses and its tumult, with the ocean and the life of idleness. And now I am, praise Hash-m, in my home near the ancient sea, my strength and beginning of my vitality. It is the great and awesome sea called "Yam HaTalmud ...".

Rabbi Tzvi Hirsch [1879-1966] was the elder rabbi of London and head of the Association of London Rabbis ("Hisachdus Harabonim").
