The Chofetz Chaim's dedication to his American Distributor of the Mishnah Berurah: Abraham Meyers

dedication to Meyers

In 1901 the first volume of the Mishnah Berurah was republished, with an interesting dedication on verso of title page. The Chofetz Chaim dedicates the book to Avraham Meyers of New York, who accepted upon himself the task of distributing the Chofetz Chaim's works in the United States, for no financial reward. Also noted in the dedication are supporters in London and South bend Indiana.

It appears that the Mishnah Berurah got around and became popular rather fast, at the time of the publishing of this volume in 1901, the 5th and 6th parts of the Mishnah Berurah have not even been published yet.
