Editor, Jewish Daily Bulletin,

Dear Sir:

The Jewish Division of the New York Public Library is planning to commemorate the two hundredth anniversary of the birth of Moses Mendelssohn, which will occur on September 6, 1929, by arranging a suitable exhibition of materials pertaining to Moses Mendelssohn, his life, work and influence. It is intended that in addition to printed books and photographs, autographs and manusecripts of eminent Jews from Mendelssohn to the present day be exhibited.

Those who are in possession of material which might prove of value for the exhibition and are willing to cooperate with this enterprise, are requested to communicate with the Jewish Division. New York Public Library, 476 Fifth Avenue, New York.

Very truly yours,


Chief, Jewish Division.
