. . . P.S. In addition to the P.S. to your daughter and her fiancé, as per enclosed copy, I reiterate prayerful wishes that together with your wife you should have much true Yiddishe and Chassidishe Nachas [Jewish and chassidic pleasure] from the newlyweds and each and all of your offspring and, in due course, theirs, and in growing measure, as expressed in my letter to your daughter.

The Zechus [merit] of your worthy deeds for spreading and strengthening Yiddishkeit in general, and for the cause of Chasidus in particular, will stand you and yours in good stead, in accordance with the blessings of my saintly father-in-law, at whose holy resting place you will be remembered. And may you always have good news to report.

It is my pleasurable duty to express my appreciation of your being instrumental in arranging a meeting of our Askonim [community activists] with Prime Minister Menachem Begin during his recent visit. This, too, will surely bring good fruits, and in a growing measure, as above.
