The author addresses a question posed by R' Zev Yehudah Lichtenstein regarding a rumor that Rabbi Hillel Lichtenstein of Kolomyee visited America. The rumor goes that Rabbi Hillel Lichtenstein of Kolomyee signed his name in a Pinkas of one of the Shuls in the East Side of New York. 
The author denies the rumor claiming that Rabbi Hillel Lichtenstein of Kolomyee  would never visit America because of the spiritual situation of that time. 

But if you look in the Sefer Rav Sholom authored by Rabbi Sholom Adler , you see Reb Hillel of Kolomyee   advised his nephew Rabbi Sholom Adler to go to America to collect money.
(Many thanks to ללמוד וללמד for showing me the Sefer)
