Greetings and blessings,

..Again, I am writing what I already told you several times: that there is no purpose in your being so depressed and wasting your money, your peace of mind, and — to put it simply — your nerves on suspicions that have no foundation.

May it be [G‑d’s] will that you soon devote this spiritual tendency of yours to diligent study, not only in the study of Nigleh, the revealed realm of Torah law, but also in [the study of] the teachings of Chassidus. “The might will pass from one nation to the other.”1 By subjugating yourself to the diligent study of the Torah, your depression will be minimized. May G‑d send you a speedy recovery, including a recovery from depression.

I would be interested in knowing about the fixed times you have for the study of Nigleh and Chassidus. You will undoubtedly inform me of good tidings concerning this as well.

With blessings for [your] recovery and for proper health for you and for all the members of your household,

Menachem Schneerson
