This is the second page of a "yichus brieve" written by Naphtaly Kuttner my wife's third great grandpa. There is an inscription in Yiddish on the top of the letter which is hard to read. I would really appreciate if somebody could translate it for me.

All the best.

Hope this helps.
4/22/2012 8:06 PM Yes it does, Joshua Heschel Kuttner died on the 5th of July 1878 (4th of Tamuz) so I know now that it was his son Naphtaly who wrote those lines.

Awesome,

Thanks
