Greeting and Blessing:

I received your letter of January 25th.

The paragraph in which you mention about your latest business transactions, is not very clear to me. At any rate, may G‑d guide you in the way that is best for you, so that your Parnosso be ample and truly affluent, and that you and your family enjoy it in good health and on happy things, which, of course, includes matters of Torah and Mitzvoth, and Tzedoko above all.

I was especially gratified to read the references to your son and daughter. May G‑d grant that you and Mrs. Jaffe always enjoy true Yiddish and Chassidic Nachas from them.

You mention about the forthcoming Yud Shevat, and I am sure you will commemorate it in a suitable way at the Farbrengen in Manchester, and that it will inspire you and the others to follow the teachings and guidance of the Baal Hahilulo, and that the inspiration will be lasting throughout the year.

With kind regards to you and your family and all Anash, and with blessing,

M. Schneerson

Just received your letter of Jan. 31st, and, as requested, I will remember in prayer those mentioned in your letter and cable.

Enclosed is my message in connection with the forthcoming Hilulo of Yud Shevat.

With regard to the Bank loan, it is a pity you did not request a larger one, and as we have talked about it here, for inasmuch as Tzedoka is a partner in a substantial proportion, the good offices of the Baal HaTzdokos, the Almighty, are at work here.
