21938 Translation - Yiddish

3/4/2012 4:14 PM This is page two of a letter, in Yiddish, sent from a friend in Tel Aviv back to Israel Milstein, who emigrated from Orhei to New York in January 1921. Israel's daughter Mollie has apparently made some kind of proposal regarding the correspondent's son, Herzl. So the two fathers appear to be negotiating or exchanging ideas.

I have a very fine translation of the first page of this four-page letter and need help getting the rest of the letter translated.

21935 Translation - German

3/4/2012 4:14 PM Am having trouble with just a few words in this 1959 letter from my grandmother to her sister. She seems to be saying, "I am here in the country so near and yet so ??? and so far from each other." And then "The family where I live is very nice (switching to English?), thank G-d, but yet I feel so isolated from everyone ?????..."

If you could help with just the underlined words, I would be very grateful. Danke sehr!

21931 Do you recognize?

3/4/2012 4:13 PM This is a photo of my wife's grand mother(on left). Her name was Blanka Weiss (or Weisz) and she married Eugene Klein in Presov, Slovakia on Feb. 22 1921. She died on Sept. 18, 1922 giving birth to my wife's father, Theodore Klein. We have no other information about her or her family except that some of them did come to the US probably in the 1920s. We would love to find out more about them.
I think I've found her birth record and her father's name was Jonas Weisz and mother was Berta Mihalovies(as far as I can read it.

Thank you
Pat
