By the Grace of G‑d

[November 2, 1961]

Greeting and Blessing:

After the very long interval, I received your letter of October 24th. I was disappointed that you have written so little about the activities during the month of Tishrei, although it is my firm hope that you have taken full advantage of it.

With regard to the business difficulties, surely you know that the difficulties in the past have worked themselves out satisfactorily, and better than expected. So you may be sure that this will be so again, by the grace and kindness of the Almighty.

Incidentally, referring to your calculations and the loss of £4000 to £5000 for the year, you, yourself, of course, provide the answer that it was due to the payment of £7000 in interest.

I take this opportunity to thank you for sending me the Diary, which has revealed to me a new trait in your character, namely, a sense of humor. Thank you, especially, for the good news towards the end of your letter, about the improvement in the health of Mr. Moshe Becker. May G‑d grant that you will always have good news to report, not only about yourself, but also about your friends and acquaintances.

With blessing,

M. Schneerson
