Greeting and Blessing:

I have just received your letter. I was already getting anxious why I have not heard from you.

Thank you very much for the fulfillment of my request to convey regards from me, and also for the good news which your letter contained.

Inasmuch as it is written, “They will go from strength to strength,” now that you have already rested up from Shovuos, it is time to begin making preparations for the 12th of Tammuz, especially as we are going to Bench Rosh Chodesh Tammuz this coming Shabbos. Moreover, this year marks the 40th anniversary of the liberation of my father-in-law of saintly memory, and 40 years is a notable period culminating in a special measure of wisdom and knowledge to understand a matter in its full depth, as Rashi comments on the Posuk in Dvorim, 29:6.

With blessing,

M. Schneerson
