Dear Professor Pfeiffer:
Yesterday I have received your Il Giudaismo nell Epoca Neotestamentaria, for whichand for the kind inscription, I thank you and feel much honored. This is for me the right occasion to study Italian: Is not this easy to understand: La Bibbia ebraica consta di tre parti: il Pentatueco, i profeti, e gli agiografi, etc. Since many years I have the intention to learn Italian, and since I am intrigued to know what is in your book, I shall make a new start.
With kind regards to Mrs. Pfeiffer, also from my wife,
This written from Princeton, N. J., where I have a retreat and also a few friends among the scholars. The retreat is 12, Park Place.
