The letter Schechter wrote to Mrs Lewis declaring his excitement at identifying the Ben Sira/Ecclesiasticus fragment. He insists that for the time being that they keep the discovery secret.
Dear Mrs Lewis,
I think we have reason to congratulate ourselves. For the fragment I took with me represents a piece of the Original Hebrew of Ecclesiasticus. It is the first time that such a thing was discovered. Please do not speak yet about the matter. I will come to you tomorrow about 11 pm and talk over the matter with you how to make the matter known.
In haste and great excitement
MS Or. 1102
