This is pages two and three of a four page letter with an envelope that is also posted on viewmate. I would appreciate a word for word translation of as much as possible.

3/21/2012 12:07 PM This letter (and the next one which looks like the continuation)is written to the "aunt Basya and uncle Nathan". The author thanks for the presents and asks to write about their life in America with the most details. The only name mentioned - in a different handwriting at the end of the next item - is "your niece Shifra".

Based on the orthography I believe it was written before the revolution of 1917 or shortly thereafter.
