Mieses' Own Recollections of His Visit to Palestine

(See below for Credits; click to enlarge).
Mr. Peter Anderberg had notified me that Mieses, after visiting Palestine in 1936, had written an account of his visit -- including a game against Marmorosh which I have not found in the Hebrew press at the time -- in the Jüdische Rundschau, vol. 41, no. 51, 26.6.1936, page 18. 

Mieses' article includes a tally of his games in Palestine, and a survey of the leading organizations, clubs, and personalities he met during the visit. I am now translating the game notes (irregular opening, 0-1 in 23 moves) into English, but the moves should be clear enough in the scan, which can be clicked on for a large picture.
