B”H, 2 Sivan, 5710

Greetings and blessings,

..Directing our attention to the news at large about the flooding of the river in the city of Winnipeg, it is of pressing importance that the yeshivah students should concern themselves with the situation of the local Jews there in general and the members of the chassidic brotherhood in particular, extending all possible assistance to them. This is particularly true with regard to young boys and girls who require extra supervision when they find themselves taking refuge in undesirable surroundings.

Since you visited Winnipeg a while ago on a mission from my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, הכ"מ, and you are familiar with the members of the chassidic brotherhood there, I request that you write to them and show an interest in them.

Please inform me about everything that takes place concern­ing this and if you see that there is something for their benefit appropriate for us to do from here, please offer suggestions.

With blessings for receiving the Torah with joy and inner feeling,

M. Schneerson
