TLS signed “M. Begin,” one page, 8.5 x 11, The Knesset letterhead, August 19, 1964. Letter to Robert Cohen, in full: "Thank you for your letter concerning the issue of a postal stamp in honour of Rosh Betar Zeev Jabotinsky. Indeed we made efforts to have such a stamp issued before the repatriation of Rosh Betar's remains, however we were only partly successful, as the ministry of Posts agreed to have an imprint (seal) on envelopes with the words 'Zeev Jabotinsky returns to the Homeland.' We shall continue with our efforts about the stamp for the next year, namely on the 25th anniversary of Rosh Betar's passing away." In fine condition. Ze'ev Jabotinsky (1880-1940) was a Russian Jewish Revisionist Zionist leader, author, poet, orator, soldier and founder of the Jewish Self-Defense Organization in Odessa. With Joseph Trumpeldor, he co-founded the Jewish Legion of the British army in World War I, and later he established several Jewish organizations in Palestine, including Betar, Hatzohar, and the Irgun.
