This card was sent by Jacob Isak Sicherman, a soldier in the Austro-Hungarian army, from Cracow to his wife, Matylda, in Biharnagybajom, Hungary. It is part of a series written during this holiday period (the other cards have been previously posted and translated). On the picture side, which shows the Royal Castle in Cracow and is not posted, he has written New Year greetings.
