This is a digital reproduction of a handwritten letter from Jacob Spafford (to Mr Peters?), dated 15 October, 1927. Jacob Spafford was the adopted son of Horatio and Anna Spafford, two of the founding members of the American Colony in Jerusalem.

Mentions the earthquake but also “good news” that the road from Damascus Gate to their house has been paved, as have roads to Jaffa, Bethlehem and Ramallah.

The letter was digitised by the Planet Bethlehem Archive and exists as part of the 1927 Earthquake collection within the Library of Congress project of the Planet Bethlehem Archive.
