Here is an English michtav kloli from 18th Elul 5710. On the bottom left of the page there is written a code 'RMS:n', the RMS reference is understood, however, if anyone knows what the 'n' refers to please let me know in the comments.

Another Letter from Reb Itche Masmid

Whilst we're on the subject of Reb Itche Masmid here is another letter that just shows you can be a beinoni and be practical and with it at the same time.

Letter from Reb Itche Masmid

A few interesting points in this letter dated Sivan 5696 to Reb Yisroel Jacobson. Reb Itche explains that it is over ten years since you've seen the Rebbe and even then it was only whilst he was in America which doesn't count for anything since "tzu a Rebben darf men fohren" and since you saw him in America "zeh ayno afilu kemo hamoshol shel melech basodeh..."

At the end he reports on a pogrom that occurred in a town close to Otvotzk and the fear of having to uproot is not helping the Frierdike Rebbe's health and he concludes "der velt is grois un yidden hoben kayn mokom nit".
