“I hope that my term of office will witness the moral and material prosperity of all Palestine citizens, and it is my fondest hope that I may do something towards this,” the new Palestine High Commissioner, General Wauchope, writes in a letter received here by the Ashkenazic Vaad Hair of Jerusalem, in reply to the message of congratulation which it sent him on his appointment.
