To my dearly beloved children,

First of all I want to let you know that, thank God, we arrived safe and sound in Warsaw and that all my dearly beloved sisters, brothers, sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law and mother-in-law came to meet us at the train station. Just imagine my surprise. Thank God, we had a very easy journey and had a good time in Venice and in Vienna. I'll tell you about it later in a separate letter but now, in the first hour after our arrival I am sitting here, at the mother-in-law's place, writing you these few words.
Now, dear children, write me what news you have got, and let me know if I forgot the pictures. If I did, please send me the pictures of the children. Greetings ..." (last word illegible)


The date looks like the 27th of June of 1920.
Don't know if this tallies with the genealogical data you might have from other sources.
