24733 Translation - German

10/28/2012 7:17 PM TRANSLATION RECEIVED. NO FURTHER TRANSLATIONS NEEDED.

I believe these photos show a house in Altdorf in which my MAYER family lived in the 19th century. A translation of the message would help verify this. The second photo seems to be the same house indicating significance to the family.
The writer was probably one of two Benjamin WEIL cousins probably visiting Germany from NYC. Three MAYER sisters married 2 WEIL brothers and first cousin Jonas Weil in NYC. (There is a tree including this family in the FTJP but the name is spelled MEYER in that tree.)
The card is addressed to one of these sisters, Babette Mayer Weil, my great grandmother. Translation help appreciated.
Also, if anyone near Altdorf recognizes the house I would appreciate hearing from you.
