(also purchased a large part of the land for Nes Ziona Colony in 1891). He persisted to hire Jewish laborers only & willingly paid them much more than for Arab workers, aided Yemenite newcomers to be settled in Rehovot Colony, founded "Neta'im" Society & was appointed advisor of the famed Zeev Tiomkin (who headed the Jaffa Executive Committee).

Land will be given to the bank if loan is not paid within two years. A 50 mil Palestine Revenue stamp is tied to the letter by Eiseberg’s signature & by a linear dater hstmp. FINE & SCARCE!!
