Greetings and blessings,

In response to your letter: Thank you for sending me the passage from your article about.... With regard to your question whether there is anything to change [in the article], etc.:

In my humble opinion, there are at least two matters [that require emendation]:

a) It is apparent from the piece that it was written with great care so that it would not be obvious that the writer was a Lubavitcher chassid. This concern is regretful. First of all, the time when the knowledge of the above would bring one difficulty has passed. At present, the opposite is true. Secondly, it is already known that you are a Chabad chassid and so the endeavor to hide the matter is purposeless. On the contrary,...1

b) The greatest source of satisfaction to my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, הכ"מ, is that all of his activities should be alive, continuing, proceeding forward, and growing. Therefore every article or notice [about him] from a good friend should leave a reader with the impression that [the Rebbe’s]work is proceeding, continuing, and developing, instead of leaving him with the impression of a eulogy alone.

Certainly your mother’s situation has already improved, will continue to progress and become better, and you will be able to share good tidings concerning this.

I sign with wishes and a blessing that you and the members of your household — each one individually — will have a healthy and restful summer in all particular matters wherever they are located,

Rabbi Menachem Schneerson
