B”H, 7 Menachem Av, 5710

Greetings and blessings,

Your letter of 4 Menachem Av with the enclosed pan was just received. In the interim, my letter of erev Rosh Chodesh Menachem Av certainly reached you.

With regard to the well-being of your son: I am amazed at the members of the chassidic brotherhood who are severe in their interpretation of the events that happen to them1 even though they know the adage [repeated by] my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, הכ"מ, in the name of several of the Chabad Rebbeim:2 “Think positively and the outcome will be good.”

I just now read your pan in the room of my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, הכ"מ. My revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, הכ"מ, will certainly bless [the individuals mentioned] and his blessings will be fulfilled in a complete manner.

Signing with blessing and hoping to hear good news from you.

M. Schneerson
