Greeting and Blessing:
I have just received your letter from Manchester. Many thanks for the good news it contained in regard to all the matters in Eretz Yisroel.
Once again, Mazel Tov for the wedding of your nephew in Eretz Yisroel. Last night I bade farewell to your niece from Manchester.
I am particularly appreciative of your thoughtfulness in sending me your report and good news so promptly. May G‑d grant that you should spend much money on postage for letters speeding good news.
I was of course particularly pleased also to note that you visited the various Chabad institutions, including also the Chabad activity of the Tefillin Campaign at the Kosel. It gave me a great deal of pleasure to read about it.
Referring to your previous correspondence, I got the impression that you are not “one hundred percent” satisfied… I trust that if this impression is correct, the situation has improved, all the more so that we had Chanukah in between, when every Jew is inspired to greater advancement in illuminating the self and the surroundings with the light of the Torah and Mitzvoth... At any rate, I will be grateful to you if you let me know how the matter now stands. Needless to say, I expect you to be quite candid in describing the situation as it is, without giving thought to whether it will bring me Nachas or otherwise. For in such matters, it is very important to know the exact situation. Of course, if you also have some suggestions to make, and if there is anything that can be done from this end, you will not hesitate to write them to me.
Once again I send you and yours my prayerful wishes for good in all [the] above, and also to draw from the holiness of Eretz Yisroel to inspire all your affairs and actions in Chutz Lo’oretz.
P.S. You mention that you had occasion to meet socially with Minister Rabbi Dr. Warhaftig. I trust that you also had an opportunity to discuss matters of klal with him.
