Letter Signed, in German, on 4to watermarked paper, Vienna, March 4, 1903.

A good letter to membership organizing a meeting of the action committee for the Zionist World Congress. "Dear Sirs...This year the congress will take place in early summer, possibly as early in July . The election of the delegates for the Congress of Zionists is by direct and secret ballot - the other election modalities are up to the individual national organizations. However, these have to obtain approval of their elections made from the central A[ction] C[ommittee] at least three months before the elections. We therefore ask you to inform us without delay in which manner you are proposing to conduct this year's elections." Signed "Herzl" as committee chairman and "Mamorek" as secretary.
