TLS in Hebrew, one page, 5.5 x 7.5, official letterhead, September 6, 1955. Letter to Prime Minister Moshe Sharett, written while serving as minister of defense. In full (translated): "In view of recent occurrences with the Jordanians, we have to notify the United Nations Secretary Mr. Dag Hammarskjold as follows: Violation of Article 8 of the Cease Fire Agreement with Jordan which guarantees ‘freedom of movement in essential roads—including resuming regular operations of cultural institutions on Mount Scopus, free access to the Hold Places and to cultural institutions (the University on Mount Scopus), use of the cemetery on the Mount of Olives, resuming pumping water in Latrun,’ the United Nations Secretary has to assume responsibility for this situation. If he does not do so, Israel sees itself free to act.” Double-matted and framed with a portrait to an overall size of 20 x 16. In fine condition. The “Cease Fire Agreement” he mentions was officially called the Jordanian-Israeli General Armistice Agreement and was signed on April 3, 1949. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
