A letter in the handwriting and with the signature and personal stamp of Rebbetzin Sarah Friedman, the widow of the Rebbe Rabbi Yitzchak Friedman of Sadigura-Rimanov. Dated in her handwriting: Seder Tzav 5794 [1934].

In the letter, the widow expresses her gratitude for the sum of money she received and gives her blessing for 'success and bountiful income... the one who awaits God's salvation." Her handwritten signature appears in the margin of the letter. Letters from her are rare. The letter was also stamped with her personal stamp from after her husband's death: "Widow of the Rebbe Rabbi Yitzchak of Sadigura-Rimanov'.
