1/14/2013 6:43 AM The quality and the handwriting are awful. Also it seems that the first page is missing. I even couldn't understand who is writing to whom and how they are connected to Levinsky. The remarks in brackets are mine. Here is what I could make out of it:
..Levinsky was admitted to Yunia(I don't know what's Yunia, tried to check it out on Google, with no results). But Yunia what's the use of it - waste of time going there, only some hope to get a position in the future. Also Levinsky makes some income from (giving) lessons, but lessons are two cancelled, one from time to time, so sometimes no income from there. Yes, yes, it's important to demand from him, scold and threaten a bit. I believe Levinsky's conscience is still there to scold and threaten. Usually conscience is by itself a threatener and a scolder. Of course, in order to understand all that one has to be here, from far it's hard to believe. A fly, no matter how you describe it, looks as an elephant (from afar).
So, Mr. Kaminsky, be calm, I assure you I'll send (money) for my coat and suit (striked out). For the tickets (or vizas?) will pay my brother-in-law in New York and my wife's mother.
Best regards Your N.
