Dear Sir:

I notice that in your report in your issue of June 5th of the Berlin meeting of the Zionist General Council, it is stated that “the majority of the members of the General Council expressed appreciation of the masterly form of the Marshall document,” the reference being to the draft constitution of the Jewish Agency.

I think it is right that I should point out that, as a matter of fact, the document in question was not drafted in New York, but in London, and that its author was not Mr. Marshall, but myself. I feel sure that Mr. Marshall would be the first to agree that the draft constitution was incorrectly described as “the Marshall document,” and that the credit for its drafting should be given where it is due.

Yours faithfully.

Leonard Stein.

London, June 20, 1929.
