Greetings and blessings,

Your pan 2 was received and, without binding myself by a vow, I will read it at the gravesite of my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, הכ"מ. The “tzaddik who has departed and who is to be found in all the worlds more prominently than during his lifetime” 3 will certainly give his blessing, and G‑d will fulfill his blessings in material and spiritual matters.

With blessings for a chasimah and a g’mar chasimah tovah,

M. Schneerson

Between Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur, 4 5711

On the day before Rosh HaShanah, I read your pan at the gravesite, and afterwards in the private chamber of my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, הכ"מ, the place where [chassidim] enter for yechidus and give [their] pannim. “One who gives [a present to a friend] must notify him.” 5

Certainly you saw the communal letter. Please inform [me] what was done with regard to this throughout the month of Tishrei, a month of general import.

With regard to what you write: 6 “Please, have mercy on us....” For this, one must have the potential, essential powers, quintessential powers, revealed powers, and perfection in the garments of thought, speech, and deed, etc., etc.

You will certainly inform me about the progress of your efforts to secure all the documents and permits. 7
