This was a letter of congratulations sent to my great uncle in Quebec City from a relative in Suceava on the upcoming marriage. The bottom is written in Yiddish, but the main is in old German script.
I also don't understand the date, seems to have two numbers after the month before the year.

Wenn wir auch nicht sind dabei
so ist dies einerlei
denn freundschaftliches Blut
meint immer aufrichtig und gut.
Unseretwegen wünschen wir dem
Brautpaar Glück und Segen. Auch nicht
minder sol[l]st Du mein liebster Bruder
mit deiner lieben Frau alles beste
bei deinen lieben Kindern erleben.


Masel Tov!
Suczawa (Suceava), 29 December 1904

Even if we are not there,
this is not for us to care;
blood of friends will always be
kindness and sincerity.

From our part we wish bride and groom happiness and blessings. Last but not least, dear brother, you shall have the best of lives with your wife in the presence of your dear children.

Even if we are not there,
this is not for us to care;
friendship's blood will always be
kindness and sincerity.
