Sacramento, August 13, 1901
Leon Salomon, Esq.
Secretary of Congregation B'nai Israel City

Dear Sir,
Allow me to acknowledge the receipt of
a set of resolutions presented to me by Congregation
B'nai Israel. Let me assure you of my cordial
and keen appreciation of the kindly spirit that
prompted so graceful an action. I shall cherish
them as an earnest and a distinct manifestation
of the goodwill and friendliness that has existed
between this Congregation and myself and that
I sincerely hope, will continue to exist, despite
the fact that I am no longer in your midst.
The possibilities of Congregation B'nai Israel are
greater by far than its members imagine them to be.
With but a moderate display of earnest enthusiasm
this congregation should grow and expand both
religiously and materially until it becomes a
well recognized factor among the progressive
forces of Judaism. In taking my leave of you
I do so with the fervent wish that Congregation
B'nai Israel may always strive to be in the
front, with the banner of light and truth
hoisted aloft, that it will endeavor to keep
face with the progress of the times and that
it will work unitedly and harmoniously
until its fondest hopes are realized.

I am, dear sir,
Yours faithfully,
William H. Greenburg
