This is a letter from my Grandfather's cousin Lea Hauptman. In this time period, she and her sister Rosalia had just moved from Krakow, Poland to live with relatives in Borgerhout, Antwerp, Belgium. This letter was sent to my Grandfather Israel Isaac "Isadore" Wilhelm who was living in Sosnowiec, Poland at the time. We expect this postcard letter to be giving my Grandfather news of their relocation and which relative they may be living with.

A literal translation of this postcard would be preferred, but even a general translation, or identification of names would be helpful.

I got your postcard and we thank you for that.
You asked about our situation, so far it is not as good as it was at the beginning (at the first time?).
Rozia is learning how to polish diamonds and I'm making wigs but I earn very little. you want us to send you oue photographies but you sen yours first and then I will send you ours with a detailed letter. How are you? is everyone healthy? Please, write me how my sister's doing, how she looks - its bee a long time since I've got a letter from her and I'm very worried. Please write me everything in details and fast. So far there is nothing special here. What's new in Sosnowiec?
We greet/salute you dearly (Polish fraze... they send kind regards...)
Your cousins,
Liza and Rozia Hauptman
Regards for the family
