In response to the congratulations offered by the Anglo-Jewish Association, the following acknowledgment was received from Sir Moses Montefiore :—•
East Cliff Lodge, Ramsgate,
24th January, 5645—1885. To Baron Henry de Worms, M.P., President, the Members of the Council, and the Rev. A. Lowy, Secretary of the Anglo-Jewish Association, London.
I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your esteemed letter, conveying to me your felicitations on the occasion of the centennial anniversary of my natal day.
My heart is overflowing with sincere thankfulness to the Most High for having tended me all my life, and there will for ever remain enshrined within my memory the grateful sense I entertain for the manifestation of kindness which I received from you and many valued friends on my entering, as well as on my completing, the hundredth year of my existence.
I appreciate highly the token of friendship by which you have greatly honoured me, and fervently pray that the Most Supreme may shield you and your families, so as to enable you to continue your noble exertions in the cause of religion, in the cause of suffering humanity, and in the vindication of truth and justice. I call upon Him, who is the Eternal Disposer of events, to inspire you with holy zeal, that you may not rest until the innocent sufferers from oppression will be relieved, and Israel dwell in peace in every part of the globe.
I am, with best regards,
Yours very truly,
Moses Montefiore.
