14 Menachem Av, 5711,

Greetings and blessings,

I duly received your letter from 5 Menachem Av and I was happy for the good tidings, that [the condition of] your son … has improved. May G‑d enable you to continue to share good tidings on frequent occasions.

With regard to your request for an interest-free loan for your business: You are certainly aware that my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, זצוקללה"ה, נבג"ם, זי"ע1 founded a free-loan fund managed by the Lishkah2 in order to help refugees3 and [enable them to] establish themselves. It is difficult for me to change the existing structure, in particular, since it was established by my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe. Just as the pattern was previously, so too now, you should turn to the chassidic mentor, R. Benyamin Gorodetzky.4 Undoubtedly, he will do what is possible within the present capacity of the free-loan fund. From my side, I am also writing him concerning this.

The kuntreis, Reshimos Eichah,5 was sent to you under separate cover. You will certainly acknowledge its receipt.

With blessing,
