Beyfus Brothers

XI/38/52, 2 boxes

A series of family correspondence from Frankfurt, Amsterdam and Manchester. Some of the earliest letters in the series, 1807-1816, are addressed to N. M. Rothschild from his brother-in-law Siegmund Leopold Beyfus (married to Babette) and his future brother-in-law, Meyer Beyfus, soon to be married to Julie. A letter in Judendeutsch from Amsterdam in 1807 bemoans the fact that even ships flying the flags of little states are being arrested at the harbour, and English merchandise is badly wanted. The correspondence to the house from the same date is in German, often with lengthy postscripts in Judendeutsch. The acceptance and discharging of drafts and bills (firsts and seconds) is reflected and there are details of many central (i.e. Hamburg and Amsterdam) accepting houses dealing with drafts.
