By the Grace of G‑d
14th of Menachem Av, 5725
Brooklyn, N.Y.
[August 12, 1965]

Greeting and Blessing:

I just received your letter of August 8th of which page two seems to be addressed to me, but page one to someone else. I therefore hasten to acknowledge receipt of this letter, and to return that page to you.

I am pleased to note that you have opened your shops, and may G‑d grant that the results should be increasingly favorable.

With regard to the proposition to enter into a partnership, which was made to you, I assume that the one who made the offer would eventually accept your terms, and this should be of benefit to you, as it would eliminate a competitor.

I do not know what you wrote to me in the missing page one, but I trust it too contained good news. All the more so since we have left behind those days which we have been promised would be converted into days of happiness and joy, and have now entered into the days of Nechomo.

With blessing,

M. Schneerson
