Typed Letter Signed ("Chaim Weizmann"), 1 p, New York, May 17, 1948, to Judge Samuel I. Rosenmann, on Waldorf-Astoria letterhead. Chaim Weizmann was a distinguished scientist and first prime minister of the independent State of Israel from 1948-1952. He had been president of the World Zionist Organization in the years 1920-1931 and 1935-1946. During the years prior to Israel's independence, Weizmann was often at odds with the British government because of what he saw as its abandonment of its obligations toward the Zionists. At the end of his life, Weizmann remained bitter, lonely, and rarely consulted by the government. Prime-Minister Ben Gurion visited Weizmann about once a month, but perceived him as a figurehead. Written from New York three days after the UN resolution, this is the first Weizmann letter offering his opinions concerning the Arab response to the resolution. In part: "My dear Judge Rosenman: / This is the first letter which I am writing since the news of last night has reached me. It is only proper that it should be addressed to you who have contributed so much of your effort and wisdom towards bringing about some of the happy results during the past few days ... I am still not out of bed but I hope to be so in a day or two. I shall then try to contact you, and if you are out of town I shall speak to your wife. In the meantime, I should like once more to express to you my sincere gratitude and to send you affectionate greetings, in which Mrs. Weizmann joins me. Yours ever, Chaim Weizmann."
