Star of David on an Autograph Letter of a Pseudo-Messiah

Source: The Jewish Quarterly Review   >   Vol. 19, No. 1, Oct., 1906   >   An Autograph Letter of a Pseudo-Messiah by David S. Sassoon p. 163
Here's some quotes from this article:
"THE accompanying facsimile is reproduced from an original autograph letter [dated 1870] of the Pseudo-Messiah Judah ben Shalom of Yemen, known as Mari Shooker Kohail. Although he is not as famous as Shabethai Sevi, still a letter of his may be of some interest to the Jewish public... The document consists of one leaf of paper, size 14 x 8a inches... At the end of the letter are three seals... and the one in the center has Magen David surrounded by some mystical letters".
