From an ongoing translation of the holy words of Saba Yisroel

The rest of the story of Rav Tzvi.

He found me in Tiberius, afterwords all of them became opposers to R' Tzvi Rosenthal. He was a student of the Chufetz Chaim, and they did not pay attention to this. I told him that this was the matter, the matter of our holy master this is a matter that is very exalted, and you put your mind and your heart into the words of Rabbainu, and it will be made from you, and you will make from yourself something else altogether. And he said that he wanted to be Breslov, and his father-in-law, and his wife didn't want, so he went to Jerusalem. He left his father-in-law and his wife, and he went to Jerusalem. He had small children, nu, he went to Jerusalem on foot, yes, he said, “I am no able to be in Tiberius, they don't want me to be Breslov, so I am forced to go to Jerusalem, to R' Shlomo, R' Shlomo Wexler.” yes, I was in great danger, they wanted to give me a beating, a severe beating, and they said to me, “you will receive a beating, tell where did Tzvi Rosenthal go? Where can he be found?!” I saw that I was in danger, I said that they should send to search for him on the route to Jerusalem. In Afula they found him, in Afula they found R' Tzvi, in Afula, and the soldiers said to him that he should return to Tiberius. He didn't want, they said to him, “we are soldiers! You don't want? We will take you with force!” they took him to Tiberius, and in the morning they took him to the Rav Klears, he made documents, that he should sign them, that he will not stand next to R' Yisroel and next to Yisroel Ber. He signed, because he was in danger, he signed, and he made the oath....
