Autograph Letter Signed ("Chaim"), 2 pp, 8vo, London, October 22, 1939, in English, to his brother Yichiel "Chilik" Weizmann, fine. "It is premature to make any plans now with an ever changing crazy world." Sevens weeks after Hitler invaded Poland, the Polish-born politician, who would become the first president of Israel, writes to his brother. In part: "I assume that you have received my letter, also the £50 which I have sent for Feiwel [another brother]... Am leaving here about middle of Nov. and we shall probably visit both North & South A., also Canada... One has to keep one's head now with all the horrible troubles of the world... Mr Blumenfeld's two sons in Paris have also gone... Blumenfeld is working hard on some industrial war problems... My address in the States is for the time being: 111 Fifth Avenue (American Zionist Organization), but you might give your letters to the Agency in Jerusalem and they will forward them."
