The ''Mob's Accountant,'' Meyer Lansky autograph letter signed, dated 26 June 1973, during the time Lansky was awaiting trial for tax evasion, after having been deported from Israel to the United States. Here he writes to ''Yushki'', his friend Joseph Sheiner, a member of the Israeli Security Agency who tried to secure citizenship for Lansky in Israel. Composed with clear penmanship, Lansky mentions a war, perhaps referring to the ongoing conflict in Israel that would erupt in the Yom Kippur War later that year, or perhaps to the Ezeiza massacre in Argentina. He writes in part, ''...I don't intend to be neglectful in writing to you. / I received a letter from Agriel...He sent a newspaper clipping of the short General that often [is] in his home. I will go to my Rabbi who was born in Israel and have him read it to me. Agriel expects to visit U.S. after a visit in S.A. when the war is over and I hope the war is over soon with a just peace. Otherwise it isn't good...Sincerely / Meyer''. Single page of translucent stationery measures 5.5'' x 7.75''. Punch holes at right, otherwise near fine.
