REVIEW  The year in review
 
HISTORY  Regaining his momentum from earlier years, Reb Noson began rebuilding Breslover Chassidut. Aside from resuming his bi-annual travels to the eastern Ukraine, he looked into the reprinting of Rebbe Nachman's writings. With the Czar's censorship of the printing of chassidic works still in effect, he realized that printing in Russia would be too difficult. Towards this end, he travelled to Lemberg (Lvov) and Brody after Shavuot of this year. He returned directly to Uman in time for Rosh HaShanah. In Elul of that year, Reb Noson's son, Reb Nachman, was bar-mitzvah, but Reb Noson was not there due to his travels.

SALUTATION  My dear son.
 
I received your letter just now and you can understand for yourself that there is no time at all to say very much. Our friends, Reb David and Reb Nachman, travelled to your community today and they are with you. You will hear from them whatever they tell you about what I have been saying. May Gd bring you and me to joy. For joy in Gd will give us the strength to stand up against the enormous audacity of the Other Side which comes at us from all directions  both from within ourselves and from others. But Gd, the Bold and the Mighty, will bestow His kindness and good upon us through Gd's own prayer, and He will give His courage to His lowly servants. For He gives strength to the weary. On this alone we rely, that after Gd has done so very much good for us by letting us hear teachings such as these, He will finish for us and support us with the right hand of His righteousness in order to fortify and strengthen us with His joy  especially during this holy festival, the time of our joy. May we merit to fulfill [the commandment] (Deuteronomy 16:15), And you will be joyful, indeed! Thank Gd, we have more than enough to be joyful about, with every single teaching and with every single word. No matter what, Ashreinu!
Fortunate are we!
 
SIGNATURE  The words of your father urging you and encouraging you to be happy all the time, especially during days of joy like the approaching ones.

My dear son. I received your letter just now and there is no time at all to say very much. May Gd bring you and me to joy and may He mitigate all the strict judgments from us. You really uplifted me by writing that you inspired yourself with the prayer. How great are the things that Gd has done with us! I inspire myself constantly with this and with other similar things. At the moment, I am utterly amazed at the kindness whereby Gd has helped me to compile the new Likutey Eitzot (Advice). It is indeed miraculous. You have done great things, Lord, my Gd! Your miracles and Your thoughts are for us! Rejoice and be happy on Simchat Torah!

DATE  With thanks to Gd, Sunday night, Noach, 5600, Breslov.
 
SALUTATION  Let the hills bear greetings to my honored and beloved friend whom I love heart and soul; the learned, illustrious and distinguished Reb Avraham Ber, may he live, along with his wife and his dear children. Life, peace and all good.
 
You should know, my friend, that I stayed in Uman for this past Yom Kippur and I came home for the Shabbat between Yom Kippur and Sukkot.
Thank Gd, all is well. We were happy, thank Gd, over the holiday  especially on Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah  and all in peace and tranquility, thank Gd. It is good to thank Gd Who has helped us thus far. May He continue with His kindness and enormous miracles to illuminate the truth in the world. May we merit to reveal to people the powerful, awesome wonder of the Rebbe's teachings and true wisdom, so that all the peoples of the world may know that the Lord is Gd. For the Rebbe's holy teachings were all meant to reveal Gd's Divinity in the world. For the time being, let us at least pay close attention to his holy words so that we may walk in his ways and spend our days in Torah, prayer, charity and good deeds. The Rebbe's thoughts are very deep and everyone can come close to Gd through his
holy pathways! It is impossible to go on about this now, especially in the context.
 
SIGNATURE  The words of your true friend forever, waiting for your
speedy salvation.

DATE  With thanks to Gd, Sunday, Lekh Lekhah 5600, Breslov.
 
SALUTATION  My dear son.
 
I received your letter just now and I was pleased to see your enormous desire to truly serve Gd. May Gd fulfill your heart's requests favorably and may He help you always to rise at midnight to engage in Torah and prayer. This is your very life. Salvation is in Gd's hands. The deliverer of this letter is pressured and there is
no time to write much. I am writing to tell you, though, to be sure to send me the sum of five silver rubles immediately through the first messenger available. I have nothing in my house and I am forced to borrow this sum for necessities. I have a great many expenses, as you know, and no one to lean on but our Father in Heaven. All my vitality, joy and hope derive from the fact that I merited to know about a light such as the Rebbe and to draw from the waters of his teachings. This is my comfort amidst my destitution. You as well, in everything that you go through  and all of our comrades too, as one man  all have something with which to rejoice and to inspire yourselves at all times! For he has already given restored our souls with delicacies of all kinds which are our life forever! I was very pleased by the letter in which you informed me that you had prepared to send... May Gd allow this to sprout for us and to come to fruition as we wish, for the honor of His Name. Gd knows what is hidden within hearts and He knows that my intention is good. He will do what is good.

DATE  With thanks to Gd, Sunday, Vayeira, 5600.
 
SALUTATION  My dear son.
 
I received your letter. May Gd give you many, many times over, more wealth, honor and life. Above all, may He open for you His treasure house of good  the treasure-house containing fear of Heaven, which is the essence of true life. Extend loving greetings to all our comrades and encourage my friend, Reb Yaakov, to come here for next Shabbat. I may very well be travelling to Uman after that, with Gd's help, and he certainly ought to meet with me now that Gd has helped him to recover from his illness. All his sins have been forgiven (Nedarim  41) and he is a new creation. He really should have come here immediately upon his recovery, but what's done is done. Now, since you wrote me that he desires to come here, you
ought to push those who push themselves and urge him to be quick about this.

LETTERNUM  294
 
DATE  With thanks to Gd, Saturday night after Shabbat, Vayishlach,
5600, Uman.
 
SALUTATION  Greetings to my dear, learned son, Reb Yitzchak, may he live.
 
I received two letters from you. The deliverer of this letter is in a hurry and there is no time to write much. You wrote me that you heard from Reb Yaakov about the three things that come when no-one expects them (Likutey Halakhot, Matanah 5,32), and I was very pleased that he told you about this. I have a great deal to say about this, but there is nowhere near enough time right now. If I am on the road much longer, I will write you at length, Gd willing. At the moment, I have no idea how things will turn out concerning Shabbat Chanukah which is approaching. May Gd have compassion on me and on all of you, as a group and as individuals. May He always direct me and all of you on the straight and true path. Gd helps me and saves
me a great deal every day with the most amazing kindnesses, but I still need many acts of salvation, especially for all of you. My eyes
are lifted to Gd that the verse will be fulfilled for me (Psalms 55:19), He has redeemed my soul in safety from impending battle, for the sake of the many who are with me.
 
SIGNATURE  The words of your father, praying for you and awaiting
your salvation.
 
NAME  Noson, as above
 
Greetings to all our comrades with a great love
