Dear sister Rivka,
I am quite surprised, dear sister, that that I have heard nothing from you since before Passover, when you sent me the money and I answered you. Since then I have heard nothing from you. So I am asking you, dear sister Rivka, to remember me because my situation is not good. The money you sent me last year was barely enough to marry off my daughter. I couldn't give her a dowery. Immediately after the wedding my daughter and son-in-law left for Iassy. They remained there a few months. They went there with empty hands, and as they didn't find any work there they came back here after Shavuot, and they are now staying with me." (Can't make out the last sentence)
