Dear brother-in-law,the children ask you for the favour,to send some money for putting up a gravestone for grandma. They go over the (grave)field, but they cannot recognize the grave.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx(I’m not quite sure with these words, yet )
Now, dear brother-in-law, if you understand this,you shall do (what they ask for).
Closing my letter (with) many greetings, many greetings from my children

Adding some alternative translations:

"They go over the cemetery but they cannot recognize the grave, after so many years she is still lying there without a gravestone.
Now, dear brother-in-law, do as you think (it is right to do)."
