Part 2 from 11 Jul 1921, ? Lodz, Poland

These letters have just surfaced and could be from the same great uncles who didn't immigrate with their 2 sisters. One sister was my husband's grandmother. In a previous letter one great uncle pleaded for money to be able to immigrate.

I would be so grateful if you could translate these letters.

We do not know what happened to these great uncles and their families
Thank you so much,
