Soeben bekam die Draht und schicke mit dieser Post die Postkarten fort vom Postmeister (,) kommen zurück weil 2 zu wenig Stempel drauf waren, so hat er 2 mehr draf gesetzt und wirst Du sie bei dieser Zeit erhalten haben. Mit herzlichen Grüssen verbleibe
Dein Dichliebendr Bruder Julius
My dear Jacob !

With cordial greetings I remain your loving brother
