27 Adar One 5717 (1957)
A good life and a long life in honor of the treasury of wisdom and Knowledge, who searches for truth and seeks faith, beloved like my own soul, Mr. Zalman Shazar. May G-d be with him and open his heart and eyes and ears to see and hear and understand the truth.
It is good to thank G-d who arranged with His wondrous providence that I succeeded to recognize the greatness and preciousness of your great stature after many years of having heard about your great name from my close friend, Reb Meir Anshin. And from then on I greatly desired to meet with you and I did not succeed in this. But your strong yearning for the truth was the cause of G-d arranging with his wondrous kindness that I merited to see you and to connect with you in the love of truth. To my knowlege there are hidden in this hints with a number of postive implications. Although in truth I am completely simple person; however a small piece of wood can ignite and burn a very large piece. And if, however, we are at the bottom point of the most humble level, as we know about ourselves that our appearance is not graceful at all, for a storm wind and a great cloud storm darken greatly, especially in these our days. However G-d already introduced a cure and a total rectification through the rivers and streams of the true wisdom of the true tzaddik. And whoever will hide himself in the shade of his wings and will go in the ways of his teachings, and will cast away from himself all other wisdoms, and will throw away his intellect completely, as though he has no intelligence except for what he receives from the tzaddik. certainly he will have a complete rectification., in ultimate perfection no matter who he is.
