Greetings and blessings,

I was happy to hear that things are progressing for you in all areas, that you have begun your business in a good and auspicious hour, and that your sister Mrs... is traveling to you and will stay with you for a certain time.

When we parted, I asked her to give you personal regards. I would like to review on paper, however, matters that I spoke about with you when you were here.

There is nothing for you to think over or to be unsettled about, for you received a blessing and assurance from my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, הכ"מ. Certainly, you remember the words that he told you personally in the time of will and happiness, [i.e., on] Simchas Torah. Now, when a tzaddik says something, he will undoubtedly not have said something that is not true, Heaven forbid. And as the Zohar states,1 a tzaddik who passes away is found in all the worlds more than during his (physical) lifetime. The Alter Rebbe explains that this means that the tzaddik has a greater effect and accomplishes more even in our world [after his passing] than he did before.

I hope to hear many good tidings from you and about you, regarding both material and spiritual things. I conclude with respect and blessings, and regards to your sister and to your nephew whom I don’t know.

Rabbi Menachem Schneerson
