By the Grace of G‑d

[October 5, 1979]

Greeting and Blessing:

This is to confirm receipt of your correspondence, and no doubt you have been able to rest up from your travels and share your good impressions and benefits from your visit here with Anash in Manchester.

Especially as our meeting and parting were in connection with, and in the spirit of, Simchas Torah, which sets the tone for the entire year, in keeping with the imperative of “serve G‑d with joy.” May each and every day of the New Year be filled with true joy in every respect materially and spiritually, and that you and Mrs. Jaffe should enjoy true Yiddish Chasidish Nachas from each of your children and grandchildren, in good health and happy circumstances.

With blessing,

M. Schneerson
