Sholom uBrocho:

I duly received your letter, but owing to the pressure of work my reply had to be delayed.

I was pleased to read about the preparations for the celebration of 13th of Tammuz, and, as our Sages say, ‘Loi hamedrosh ikor elo hamaase’, I trust the inspiration will have lasting and practical results throughout the year.

I wish you success in your business, and to fulfill the well known saying of the Old RebbeG‑d gives Gashmius to Jews, and Jews turn the Gashmius into Ruchnius.’

With blessing,

M. Schneerson
