By the Grace of G‑d
10th of Menachem Av 5734

Sholom uBrocho:

I just received your letter of 5 Menachem Av. May G‑d grant that henceforth you should report only good news, b’tov hanireh v’hanigleh1.

And, above all – good news in what is at this time the imperative of the moment, namely, the five Mitzva campaigns, that they are pursued in an ever-growing tempo. This, as already mentioned, is what Manchester is demanding of those active in these campaigns, in addition to what the activists themselves demand of themselves, of course.

Now that the “Nine Days” are behind us, all these activities can, and should, be carried out with obvious and unrestricted joy.

I did not want to mention in my letter to your wife about Kaddish, Mishnayos and Tzedoko for the soul of her mother, peace to her. But I am sure mentioning about it is not really necessary.

With blessing,

M. Schneerson
