This card was sent by Jacob Isak Sicherman, on military duty in Vienna, to his young daughters (Rosa and Beilche), then living with their aunt, Salina Sicherman, in Satmar. It is submitted for the Yiddish addenda at the top and bottom. The German text (ViewMate 26889)is translated as follows: “I'm going back today. Now I’m with Morgenstern. Yesterday I was with Dicker in Graz for a few hours. They welcomed me very well. They also wanted to give me some Krone, but I’m not accepting [it].” Possibly the Yiddish that follows is a continuation of the sentence that seems to stop in the middle. There is an additional message in Yiddish at the bottom of the German message.
