Dear sister, brother-in-law and children,

How are you all and what good news can we expect to hear from you? It is a long time since we have exchanged letters with one another, but not a day passes by that we do not talk about you. I can advise that we are all in reasonable good health at least. I did not know all this time that there is a regular exchange of letters which I learned when visiting Eliezer's parents. Their situation remains the same. Yedidi is now at work and the children took some food for him. Tevche's Bertha [his wife] is also at work because Tevche cannot go to work so she is replacing him. We are expecting an instant reply from you.

From me, Rywka
