g' ch' (ge'erte chaverim?)of the Shierptser landsman committee!!

Having not yet received a letter dealing with the Shieptser relief,I would like to describe to you my personal autobiography, and my membership in the Shieptser landsmanschaft. I am Itschak Huntik from Shierps.I lived with my parents in the Shieps Mikve street. Our neighbors were the ____family who are now in America.My mother is Rochl-Leah Huntik, David Magid's daughter. I and my younger brother, Yechiel Huntik, alone survived. From the rest of the family, we alone survived.
I recently married Itschak-Meier Lalonic's daughter, Manye(?)who is also from Shieps.
from all the donor packages and ___ ___ that you have sent through Germany, you have not yet shown an interest in us.
And maybe____me to deny(?) something to buy for the first___ ___ is also a chifa(?) for all the Shieptser. It seems that because I'm poor, they're ashamed of me.
