The aged Mr. Dimant, who, owing to his poverty, was unable to plea for postponement of his trial called for the Day of Atonement, said his prayers in court and was acquitted, will not have to worry any more about his daily bread.
The story, as circulated by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, reached a well-to-do member of the Jewish community in London, Mr. Levin, who informed Dimant that from now on he will be taken care of as long as he lives. Mr. Levin has already sent Dimant Â£10.
