Description: Two letters by Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson of Lubavitch-Chabad, to his aunt Ms. Rachel Schneerson and to her daughter Zelda Schneerson-Mishkovsky [the poet Zelda]: 1. Autograph letter [aerogram] by the Lubavitcher Rebbe, written entirely in his handwriting and with his signature [including name of recipient, the address and sender in his own handwriting, on the verso], to Ms. Rachel Schneerson. Brooklyn, . The Rebbe writes to "My aunt, the modest and honored Rebbetzin Rachel", and sends his good wishes upon the marriage of her daughter Zelda. He concludes with his wishes for a kosher and happy Pesach. The letter was written a few months before R. Schneerson accepted the post of Rebbe (after the death of his father-in-law, the Rayatz on the 10th of Shevat 1950). 2. Letter by the Lubavitcher Rebbe, to "my relative Ms. Zelda", typewritten and signed by the Rebbe. Brooklyn, 1957. The Rebbe blesses his cousin Zelda, with a "Ketiva V'chatima tova for a good sweet year in materiality and spirituality". Two letters. Good-fair condition. Dark stains on the Rebbe's letter to Zelda's mother, with a tear to the upper left corner (from removal of the postage stamp).
