6810 Hebrew Manuscript. The Pentateuch, written on
sheepskin.

Concerning this valuable manuscript, the following extract from an arti-
cle published in relation to it in the Congregationalist and Recorder, and
said to be from the pen of its Editor, Rev. Henry M. Dexter, contains
some interesting particulars : —

' " It is a Hebrew manuscript of the Pentateuch, written on skins,
which was brought to this country by the Rev. Dr. Massie, in his late
visit. Its histoi-y is given in the following exti-act from a letter from
■ an eminent gentleman in England : —

"' During a journey through Holland in quest of literary varieties
and curiosities, particularly of the Biblical and classical description, I

could give me no information as to where it was, further than its being

to Amsterdam, I took the following method of discovering it, being
fearful of advertising for it, lest the possessor should insist on an ex-
orbitant price. I employed two itinerant Jews and a Jewess, who got
their living by selling lace to travelers, to inquire among the Jews of
Amsterdam if they had any curious Hebrew Bibles, or antiquities of
any kind, and promising a liberal reward if they found any great cu-
riosities. The next day came the important news fi'om the Jewess that
she had found the greatest curiosity in the world, viz.: a beautiful MS.
of the whole law on one roll, above two thousand years old. She took
me into the Jew's quarter, where in the house of Mynheer Metz, one
of the first houses in the silk trade in Amsterdam, I found this MS. It
had been most religiously kept, even with superstitious veneration, in
