See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The cornerstones for a textile factory and ten workers’ dwellings were laid today in the new colony of Ramath Yishai, in the Jedda district, which will be inhabited by Jewish weavers who formerly lived in Lods and Bialystok. The colonists will also engage in agricultural activities. Ishai Adler, whose name the settlement bears, has donated $40,000 toward formation of the colony.
