Chess and Stamps, Part V

This time, from Eliyahu Fashcer's collection (see previous blog entry), a personal letter he got some time before the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948. How can we tell? Because the stamp used says, "Palestine" (that is, the British Mandate of Palestine). The "printed matter" inside was a chess problems journal -- Fascher was already an active problemist.
