REGARDING each of the questions you have raised, I believe that they would be difficult to settle in a private debate. For that reason, hadn’t you better present them to the government authorities and then, abiding by the instructions they give, pursue this matter to determine what is right and what is wrong?
I earnestly desire that we receive their instructions this way.
With my deep respect,
The thirteenth day of the seventh month
