Re: Need a translation of word in Hebrew letters in the last will of Salomon SCHLOSS, Mömlingen #germany #yiddish #translation

Thank you to all who have replied to me. I am sure that
Salomon Schloß meant "shalom", in the deeper meaning of the
word. Since often words in the German text are written in
the way they are pronounced in the Franconian dialect of the
Lower Main, some words are not immediately apparent to
German readers too - only speaking loudly leads to
understanding.

I should perhaps have added that the text was written on 12
July 1868. He died the same day. Salomon Schloß left behind
a fortune of over 23,000 guilders. Salomon was married
twice. After his death, the children of the second marriage
acted as the principal heirs, as the father had wished. The
siblings from the first marriage, or, as two were already
dead, their children, received more than they would have
been legally entitled to. One brother, Nathan Schloß, had
died in Richmond, Virginia (unfortunately no further data
available).
