By the Grace of G‑d
13th of Kislev, 5729
Brooklyn, N.Y.
[December 4, 1968]

Greeting and Blessing:

I duly received your correspondence, and I trust you will not take it amiss that I am so much behind in my acknowledgments. However there is one redeeming feature, namely that you surely receive full reports of what is going on here in general, and in my surroundings in particular.

Now that we are in the auspicious month of Kislev, which is generally a month of Hatzlocho for all Jews, I have taken time out from my busy schedule to send you these lines and my prayerful wishes to you and all your family, as well as to all your co-workers, for the blessing of Chag HaGeulo on the forthcoming Yud-Tes Kislev. May the Chag HaGeulo bring you a geulo of all negative and distracting matters, so that the program of Uforatzto should advance steadily and in a growing measure, which will also hasten the fulfillment of the promise of ופרצת ימה וקדמה וצפונה ונגבה כו', with the coming of the true and complete Geulo.

Wishing you again an inspiring Chag HaGeulo, and hoping to hear good news from you always,

With blessing,

M. Schneerson
