Dear Cousins,

In a letter written >from a relative in England circa 1900 the writer
says, in reference to a woman having left her husband: "Now she went
to his lodge & he sends her every week 5 shillings." Were there
Jewish "lodges" in London around that time? I would guess it wasn't a
chevra, because the man wasn't religious. I doubt he was a Mason,
because he was somewhat disreputable.

The woman in question was named "Bable." I wonder if this was a
version of the nickname "Bubele" or something else.

Best, Steve Orlen
