Greeting and Blessing:

I am directed to acknowledge receipt of your cable about the possibility of the entire group being received by the Rebbe Shlita on arrival.

It is difficult to say anything definite at this time, since the date and time of arrival have not yet been finalized. However, when the group is about to board the plane, and perhaps from actual flight, you will surely advise us of the exact hour of arrival, and then the question will be given consideration. You should bear in mind, however, that if the actual arrival of the group is at an inconvenient hour, and especially if the travellers may be wary of the journey, it may not be well-advised to arrange an immediate reception by the Rebbe Shlita. Needless to say, the travellers, themselves, should also be consulted, as it would not do to make them feel that they have been imposed upon.

With blessing,

Nissan Mindel

Since writing the above, your letter came with additional information about the trip, the arrival time expected to be between 10 p.m. and 1 a.m. The Rebbe Shlita wishes me to state that there would be no objection on his part, but the decision rests with you, in the light of what has been written above. When you have made a decision, please notify, preferably by cable.

The Rebbe Shlita appreciates the information regarding the Jewish Girls Grammar School. But because of pressure of duties, and not wishing to delay this letter, further reference to this subject must be deferred.
