Dear "shurin" (brother of wife)! I'm letting you know that we, thank God, are well/healthy. I received 10 rubles from you today, for which I'm very grateful. Maybe on Sunday ______, but still I will write to you after Saturday. May you all be healthy and happy. The children send their regards/respect.
