Interesting letter from the time that he studied in the Chatam Sofer's yeshivah, with Torah novellae that he sent to his friend the "learned young man," Yechiel Pollack of Libeň.

Rabbi Moshe Shiffman [1811-1894] studied under the Chatam Sofer. He started serving as rabbi of Mishkowitz in 1846 and from there he moved on to various rabbinical positions. He left many manuscripts of novellae from his teacher the Chatam Sofer that were included in the recently printed Chiddushei HaChatam Sofer (documentation regarding this publication is included with this lot).

[1] leaf. Ink on paper. 22x18 cm. Text on both sides of the leaf. Very fine condition.

Rabbi Akiva Eiger and Disciples
