This letter was addressed to R. Shalom Posner, one of the shluchim in Chicago at that time.

B”H, The Festival of Redemption, 19 Kislev, 5709

Greetings and blessings,

I saw here the text Mishnas Benyamin [authored by] Rabbi Silverberg from your community. There are certain matters in it where it would have been appropriate to mention [points from] the text Tzemach Tzedek and the like.

It appears that he reprints his books from time to time and therefore has the ability to correct this.

I do not want to write to him directly because I am not fa­miliar with him and his approach. Therefore I am addressing the [enclosed] letter to you as if I am answering a question [you posed].1 I rely on your wisdom to work out the matter in a fitting and appropriate way. If you feel that the entire matter is not worthwhile because of the nature of the situation, etc., you may return the enclosed letter to me.

Enclosed is the kuntreis [published for] Yud-Tes Kislev. You will no doubt share it with people at large.

With blessings for the Festival of Redemption and with greetings to all those who seek our welfare,

Rabbi Menachem Schneerson
