By the Grace of G‑d
11th of Cheshvan, 5721 [November 1, 1960]
Brooklyn, N.Y.

Greeting and Blessing:

After the very long interval, I received your letter of the 3rd of Cheshvan, with the enclosure.

As requested, I will remember all those mentioned in your letter in prayer when visiting the holy resting place of my father-in-law of saintly memory, in accordance with the contents of your letter. May G‑d grant that you will have good news to report.

Having just left the month of Tishrei, whose festivals end on a note of Simcha, the purpose of which is to carry over this joy to last throughout the year, I hope this will be so in your case. A Jew has always good reason to be in a state of Simcha, and when he lives and acts in this way, he will soon find that his optimism and hopes have been realized.

Receipt is enclosed for your donation, and may it stand you and yours in good stead.

With blessing,
M. Schneerson
