Please translate. Could be some Yiddish in there. This is a postcard from my grandfather in Leipzig sent to his older brother in Nagyvarad, Hungary (Oradea, Rom). This is side 1. I'm trying to track the lives of this Friedman siblings after their parents died in Szatmar in 1898. Thank you!

here I send this card to you which I would ask you to keep safe, for I have only this one to send to you.
With cordial greetings
[signature could be a abbreviation of Jonas or the full name not very clearly written]

When you will have received this [card] I would ask you to say a ______ for me. [I can not read the word but it could very well be a certain prayer or a special kind of good wishes]
