A collection of responsa and Talmudic novellea <<a portion of which is autograph>> . The work Yad Eliyahu (Warsaw, 1900) should be examined to determine whether the published work left out portions found in the present manuscript. R. Eliyahu Ragoler (1794-1850) studied under R. Avraham the brother of the Gr’a, as well as under R. Chaim of Volozhin. His first rabbinic position was in the city of Ragola (Ariogala) near Kaunus, Lithuania. He therafter was appointed to serve the community of Kalisch, Poland but resigned due to the burdensome of the rabbinate which he felt removed him from his studyies. See Aryeh Leib Frumkin, Toldoth Eliyahu.
