6/20/2013 1:08 PM I can't read all of it, but it mainly says: "I have close friends, a man and woman of our town... In Florida or in California... They say Moshe's..."
Hope it helps...
6/24/2013 12:28 AM I have a close friend, a husband and wife from our town. They are situated in Florida or California. It seems to me that they are coming to Philadelphia. Their names are Moshe Eigelmarch(?), the wife is Bronia Finkel, from home..family (couldn't make out one word)
6/25/2013 11:34 PM I read the missing word as "meydelshe" and wonder it it's an attempt to explain that Finkel is Bronye's maiden name.
7/30/2013 1:58 PM Line 1: I have a close friend, a man and
L2: his wife, from our town; they
L3: are in Florida or in
L4: California, and I believe that
L5: they are coming to Philadelphia.
L6: They are called Moishel Ayngemakhts, the wife
L7: is Bronya Finkel (her maiden name from home)

Note: The surname Ayngemakhts was probably taken in reference to the ancestor's occupation: making preserves.

Hope this has helped you.
