A rare postcard written by Golda Meir showing the Nile River in Cairo sold on Thursday in Los Angeles for $4,654.

The postcard, written by Meir in Hebrew and Yiddish while she was in Egypt, was addressed to Shoshana Golotzinskit in Tel Aviv, Palestine.

It reads: “Shalom Shoshana, I hope that you telegraphed me the addresses. Please send the Horowitz book immediately, tell Lobatkin that I forgot to buy it. I ask you, my dear, to write me. It’s very difficult for me. Shalom to Ruthie. Golda.”
