Mr. Alexander Cowen
New York, N.Y.

My dear Mr. Cowen:

I am sending you a copy of my letter to Mr. Joseph.....

Since he speaks of difficulties, I trust you will find a suitable opportunity to encourage him from time to time. I know that your good influence goes a long way with him, and, in addition, a Cohen has a special Mandate from On High to channelize Divine blessings materially and spiritually.

With kindest regards,
Very sincerely yours,
Rabbi Mendel Schneerson

P.S. Under separate cover we are sending you our latest publication - BUSTENAI. More copies are available on request, and will be sent to you with pleasure.
