Autograph letter by R. Avraham Yitzchak Kook, dated 1923, on personal letterhead. Written to David Tidhar of the Jerusalem Police force requesting a police escort to accompany R. Kook on his walk to the Bais Yaakov Shul (popularly known as the Churvah Shul) on Shabbos Ha’Godol and on the first day of Pesach. ™

His personality was popularized by author Shlomo Ben-Yisrael, who founded The Detective Library in 1930, a series of chapbooks which featured The Adventures of David Tidhar: The First Hebrew Detective.
