2/4/2013 5:54 AM This postcard was written by 2 different persons.
On the top printed text in Yiddish: Vilna Day...Month...Year...
(text in brackets - my comments).
First person:
Today we received letter (from) Tz., we have nothing to add to the previous letter. Be well and with God's help have a kosher anf happy Pesah. Meer

For Tziva's(or Tzova's) sister I repeat for the third time that we received fifty rubles (underlined) Meer
Second person:
I received (your) letter, I have no news. I will write more details next time. Moisey and Gittel send their regards, I visited them today. I wrote you a letter and intended to send it immediately but (my) brother after writing the above text asked to wait because he came up with a new project (idea) for you to come here for ("vtory dni". I think he meant the Peasah holiday week, literally means "secondary days") The project is as follows: since there is available work on typing machine, taking in consideration that you have the skills for such work and that training will cost us nothing, you could come for "vtory dni" of holidays and during my two-weeks stay you will learn to use it so you could work independently and earn your own money. I am joining this good plan of my brother.
