13546 Translation - Yiddish

9/13/2009 Rywka Wajnapel is my Grandmother.
The Polish text says Town Stoczek, Siedce Gubernia, Region Lukow.
For the respected Mr. Moszko Zebrak (was a Rabbi in Stoczek Lukowski, Poland), for Rywka Wajnapel. The year can be after 1907 (when Rywka married Abram Wajnapel) not later then 1914. I like to know the contents, who send the letter and who is on the photo it is (it could be either Rywka as a child or one of her daughter - Pesia or Hadas).
