Greetings and blessings,

Via your brother, the chassid R. Yaakov Katz,1 I received your [donation as] participation in our educational work in North Africa. Enclosed is the receipt.

I was especially happy that your [donation] arrived on the Day of Redemption, Yud-Gimmel Tammuz, the day when my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe זצוקללה"ה, נבג"ם, זי"ע, was released from the hand of the Yevsektsia2 in Russia in 5687 (1927), for that day serves us all as a reminder and a reinforcement for our work for Torah, Yiddishkeit, and Torah education [motivated by] self-sacrifice, following the well-trodden path down which my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, has led us. On this day, my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, raises up songs of praise and prayer for all those who proceed in his paths, [asking] that G‑d grant them and the members of their households health and success in earning a livelihood so that they can take part in his holy work in a better and easier fashion.

I hope to hear good news from you and the members of your household at all times.

With blessings for success in material and spiritual matters,
