An interesting figure in the history of the Jewish society known as B'nai B'rith was this San Francisco businessman, who served as grand secretary of their San Francisco headquarters for many years; when his real estate dealings failed and the grand lodge appeared to be missing a large amount of funds, he committed suicide. ADS, 1p, 8" X 3¼", San Francisco, CA, 1893 March 28. Very good. Moderately age toned. "Received of Mr. [R.C.] Hallowell Thirty-Eight dollars in payment of moneys collected for my account" -- apparently a payment on an I.O.U. Boldly signed in full. Dated two years prior to his suicide, this might well relate to the financial difficulties that ultimately ended up in Blank "borrowing" from his lodge and taking his life in despair. A San Francisco oddity. N° de ref. de la librería 31627
