From me your brother and brother in law
Itse Potashnik"

By the way, you can usually tell which side of a Yiddish (or Hebrew) text is right side up by looking at side borders. Yiddish and Hebrew are written right to left, and the right border is therefore, as a rule the one on which all lines start at the same place. The left side looks more jagged.

It's no a big problem if the image is upside down, as in this case, since viewmate lets readers turn images right side up -- but I thought you may want to know for the future.
