Hallo dear people on Jewish Gen.

I remember playing Pisha Paysha with my father in Dublin, Ireland, where i
grew up. I thought that it was a card game exclusive to us! It was only
when I read Jewishgen today that I realised it was a recognised card game.
Re MENDOZA the Boxer, I have a fair amount of literature on him >from a
manuscript given to our family by the author. If Robert and Ena Jacobs
want to contact me directly, I can fish out the article. I think Mendoza
might have spent a bit of time in Ireland, and was of Sephardi orgins.
