This postcard was written by a family member who lived originally in Grajevo Poland/Russia. The other side of this postcard has a picture of my grandmother Fay (Fayge) with an aunt who might have surname Bogus. It is written in old German and we would love to have it translated if there is anyone who can do it. Thanks so much.

12/2/2013 3:17 AM it seems that Samuel Buchmann, the writer of this, was not related. During WWI he happened to serve in Grajewo, and spent his time off in Berlin (where he might have lived), and offered help with mail transport between the Bogus family members.

Berlin, 14 Jul 1916
Dear Mr.Bogus!
Asked by your wife and daughter, whom I know well, I forward to you this picture. I am a soldier, serving in Grajewo. Now I am on leave in Berlin. This way I can write to you, and can also deliver letters you might want to send. Your beautiful daughter and wife would like to come to Braunschweig, since the situation in Grajewo is very bad.
Best regards, without knowing you,
Samuel Buchmann
