This letter was addressed to R. Schneur Zalman Duchman, one of the active members of the chassidic brotherhood.

B”H, Rosh Chodesh Nissan, 5709

Greetings and blessings,

Your letter of the 16th of Adar was received. I am sorry that you abbreviated your account of your memoirs this time. You will no doubt compensate in your next letter, writing enough for both of them.

I conveyed your letter to Rabbi Chayim Lieberman as you requested.

We sent you, under separate cover, Kuntreis Toras HaChassidus. Enclosed is a kuntreis for Beis Nissan and a letter from Machne Israel. They are intended to be shared with people at large.

With greetings and with blessings for a good month,

M. Schneerson
