Dear Grandchildren,
Please don't be mad at us for not writing until today. I was ill (in bed) but God gave me strength and I can work already. Our health is good so far.
We wish you all the best now.
Dear children. What are you doing? What are you learning? Can you write something in Hebrew? What do you want to learn or study. Is the weather nice? Did you already get used to the weather? what is the equivalent of 10 ( kilogram ?). I would like to send you something (purchased with coupons). How is it with the food. Did you get used to it? Did something happen with the Arabs. Please write to me about everything.
We send you greetings and kiss you from all our hearts,your grandparents.

M (?)Teplitz Schoenau, CSA Seumestrasse 13

On the side:
Why didn't Sara (?) write?

The writing is a mixture of German and Yiddish.
