In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

125 APPENDIX E Balfour Declaration, 1917 November 2nd, 1917 Dear Lord Rothschild, I have much pleasure in conveying to you, on behalf of His Majesty’s Government, the following declaration of sympathy with Jewish Zionist aspirations which has been submitted to, and approved by, the Cabinet. “His Majesty’s Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.” I should be grateful if you would bring this declaration to the knowledge of the Zionist Federation. Yours sincerely, Arthur James Balfour Source: Arthur Balfour,“Balfour Declaration,” letter to Walter Rothschild, November 2, 1917, Avalon Project, Yale Law School, http://avalon.law.yale.edu/20th_century /balfour.asp.
