This letter was addressed to R. Menachem Zev Greenglass, one of the leaders of the Lubavitcher com­munity in Montreal.

B”H, 3 Kislev, 5709

Greetings and blessings,

a) Enclosed is Kuntreis Heichaltzu which was just published together with additions. You will no doubt acknowledge your receipt of it.

b) Rabbi Leib Kramer gave me cause for joy [with the news] that a visa was already sent to my relative, R. Isser Kluvgant.1 [At first, I thought that] perhaps it would be proper to encourage [Mr.] Lavut2 to find a place for him to live, for while he was here he told me that he had begun involvement with this mitzvah. Afterwards I changed my mind, thinking that it is more fitting to wait until the opinion of my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe Shlita, concerning the matter becomes clarified.3

c) With regard to my note concerning R. Leib Schneerson of Veliz at the conclusion of that Kuntreis,please inform me of what you know concerning his lineage — his sons, his daugh­ters, and the members of his household, in particular, R. Schneur Zalman of Lodz,4 and their marriage partners. I send my thanks in advance.

With greetings to all the members of our brotherhood,

M. Schneerson
