Dear Dr. Schneid, 



Many thanks for the copy of your interesting book, 
S iyyure hak-keneset be-Dura Europos . I shall take pleasure 
in noticing it in BASOR. Your treatment seems to me both 
balanced and judicious — far superior to that of another 
historian of art whose work I have just read in manuscript. 

The question of translation into English is difficult. 
I think that it might be well for you to publish an article 
in English embodying the content of your book, including 
especially novel points of view and conclusions. If this 
article arouses interest among scholars, then a larger 
monograph in English would be easier to publish.

Dr. Naftali (Otto) Schneid, 

Technion, 

Haifa, Israel. 

Dear Dr. Schneid: 

Thanks for your letter' of April 8th. Though 
scarcely competent, I shall be very happy to put in a 
good word for you if askedCffey all means, mention j 
my name among your references. Fortunately, I am -now 
much better than I have been since January 1st. My ; 
visit to Israel, though extremely valuable to me, wa4^ 
very exhausting and was fol%ed by' several months 
of concentrated activity. I am not so young as I once 
was, and so I lost nearly three months as a result of 

. . ^ A G t onid however, I. am now much 
nervous exhaustion. As , l Scia, riuwevox , 

"better.

31st. of March, 1957. 



Prof. Dr. W. Albright, 
c/o Hebrew University, 
JERUSALEM 



Dear Prof, Albright, 

We would be very happy 
to welcome you in our modest 
home and to .^et good news from 
you about your coming . 

However, if it is impos- 
sible this time, I would te glad 
to meet you at any other p3>ace 
convenient to you. 

Sincerely 

and very respectfully, 
yours, 



Dr. Otto Shneid. 



The Johns Hopkins University 
Baltimore 18, Md., April 19,1957 



Dear Dr. Shneid: 



I am very sorry that there was no time to answer your 
kind letter of 31 March before leaving Israel on the 7th 
April. Every waking minute was occupied. It seems that 
the Ha-aretz published a statement that I would be 100 
days in Israel instead of the planned 10 days by inadvertent^ 
adding a zero. Actually I was there only 9 days, 5 after 
receiving your letter. I am happy to hear from you again 
and to know that you are well. 



Cordially, 




W. F. Albright
