Dear sister, brother-in-law and children,

How are you all and what is new to hear from you? I heard that the Kayman family received a letter from you. I went there promptly to read it. Thank God that we heard from you after such a long time. I have written to you but from your letter I understand that you have not received mine. Maybe you would consider writing more often, and send us a picture together with your letter. Everything is normal with us. The children are at school and Yedidi is out. We are already together with the old people at Pavelkes [a street at the town's edge]. No other news. David is working, Leibl and Shmuel too have work. I wish you all good health.

Rrom me, Rywka
