Weizmann Makes Tenth Anniversary of Jabotinsky’s Death; Sends Special Message to Son

A letter from President Weizmann to Eri Jabotinsky, Board deputy, on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the death of his father, Weizmann Jabotinsky, founder of the Zionist Revisionist movement, was made public here today. The letter read:

“Jabotinsky’s memory is dear to me. All the years we worked together I felt a deep appreciation for him. Few are the people I encountered who left such a deep impression on his followers and opponents. I am sure that if he were alive he would have been satisfied that his longing for statehood had been fulfilled.”
