Letter handwritten and with the full signature of Jerusalem emissary Rabbi David Yekutiel HaKohen to philanthropist Rabbi Avraham Azaryahu Otlingo from Akway, Italy.

In the letter, the emissary requests from Rabbi Avraham Azariah that he expedite the members of his community to send the charity funds that have been collected for the benefit of settlers in the Holy Land. The letter also mentions: Mahara"m Zakut [son of Rabbi Eliyahu HaLevi, rabbi of Alessandria della Paglia] and Rabbi Ya'akov Nunis Vais of Livorno.

On his way, he printed books by his grandfather, Rabbi David HaKohen [Rapaport]: Da'at Kedoshim (Livorno 1749) and Ben Heh Heh (Livorno 1823). Refer to: A Ya'ari Shluchei Eretz Yisrael pp. 704-706 and in the quarterly Jerusalem Book II, pp. 149-146.
