Notes, topics or text 

Litvinoff's draft for BR's cable to Kosygin requests his intercession on behalf of Yiddish writer Borisovich Kerler and his wife Anna Efimovna. Efimovna's sister sent Kerler an affidavit for family reunification in Israel. However, the passport granted to him by the Israeli Embassy in Moscow was suddenly withdrawn by the Soviet militia. BR asks Kosygin to allow Kerler to leave the USSR on humanitarian grounds.
