Note accompanying the item: "An appeal of the Venice Rabbinate after the fire in the ghetto which had broken out on the eve of Sabbath, April 15, 1752. We are informed that forty-four houses were burned down in a very short time, the people were only able to save their bare lives by leaving through windows with the help of ladders. An old man and an old woman were burnt to death. The appeal, dated April 28, bears six printed signatures of the Rabbis Solomon Mintz, Moses Menaḥem Merari, Jacob Ḥai Levi, Jacob Belilios, Simḥa Calimani and Jacob Saraval."
The present copy was sent to the community of Pisa and has a red wax-seal of Calimani.
