Greeting and Blessing:

At this time, before Pesach, the season of Our Liberation, I wish you and all yours, in the midst of all our people, a happy and Kosher Pesach, and liberation from all distracting matters materially and spiritually.

With blessing,

M. Schneerson

P.S. Thank you very much for the report about the state of affairs.

With regard to Mr. R., there was no opportunity to speak to him about the matter which you suggested1, inasmuch as he sat there apprehensive lest I should discuss with him some special matter. Although I do not know what he was afraid of, I carefully avoided touching upon matters which he had not taken the initiative to discuss.

Referring to the matter of republication of the Tanya with the English translation, I do not think it will be possible to make it page for page, since in English translation the text is considerably longer, and there are also footnotes to take into consideration. However, you will undoubtedly discuss all aspects with the printers, and will surely let me know2.
