4/14/2010 This postcard was sent from my great grandmother's brother-in-law (to be) Robert Belinkov to an unidentified man with the surname Matizem (or something like that). Mr Matizem seems to have lived in the home of my great grandparents, Samuel and Anna Katzeff, in Stockholm, Sweden.

I would like to have the postcard translated from Russian to English. If it is possible, I would also appreciate a type out of the original Russian Cyrillic text.
