    More Information:

    Shortly after assuming the office of defense minister of Israel, Ben-Gurion sends this fiery letter to editor Shoken: "Dear Editor/ In your newspaper you raised a discussion regarding the exact date on which, to your opinion, the anniversary of the second 'Allyah' should be celebrated in Petach-Tikva. In my opinion, it is not the serial order that matters but the attention the pioneers which is the essence of the celebration. Your reporter who has not even bothered to thank those pioneers . . . instead . . . supplied a 'sensation' to his readers."

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
