Letter written and signed by Admor Avraham Elimelech Perlow of Karlin.

Almost the entire letter consists of words of thanks and blessings to Rabbi Yaakov Pinchas for various letters that he sent him and activities and efforts he carried out on behalf of the Admor: "It is very valuable to me, and there are not enough words in my mouth to thank you for the many troubles and attempts in this great thing, may your reward be double and paid by the G-d of our fathers ... and may Hashem give you the merit to work only through health and nachat from your children and serenity ... the page is too short to contain all my thanks and blessings for all these favors ... and all the berachot should be fulfilled ... and bless him with all good, always, and a gmar chatima tova ... to soon see salvation for Yisrael when Hash-m returns His nation to His land. Then we will all merit ..." He signed in the margin of the letter.

Admor Rabbi Avraham Elimelech Perlow of Karlin [1892-1942] was the son of Admor Rabbi Yisrael "HaYanuka" of Karlin. He served as Admor beginning in 1921, after his father passed away in Frankfurt and was the most prominent Admor amongst his brothers. He visited the Land of Israel a few times. His last visit was in 1939, on the eve of the outbreak of the war. His chassidim tried to prevent him from returning to Europe, but he refused. He left on the last ship that left Palestine and was killed in the Holocaust together with all of his offspring.
