Sholom uBrocho:

I duly received your correspondence.

On this day of Rosh Hashono loilonos·, and since “Man is like the tree of the field,” I reiterate all the good wishes to your wife, to the effect that all your affairs should grow steadily and with renewed strength and vitality; that you should not have worries about business, and instead have worries only how to enlarge the activities of Lubavitch, both in quantity and quality, in Manchester and in England at large, for you have an important share in all these activities.

With blessing for Hatzlocho and Bsuros Toivois,

M. Schneerson

P.S. No doubt you received my regards from Mr. Dov Ber Perrin coupled with the hope for intensified activities. And though it is nothing new to hear from me such expectations, I trust they will be received in good grace and with resolution to see them materialized, indeed even in a greater measure than hoped for, since yogaato umotzoso is an assured promise.
