Hello. This is page 1 of 5 (2 original pages on each). It to my great grandfather in Pittsburgh from a family member who I believe would be writing from Seirijai, where my great grandfather lived before he and his family came to the U.S. I am interested in as close a translation as possible. I realize this will be work and am willing to wait for more than a rough translation. I am grateful for any help or direction as to where I can get a detailed translation.
Many thanks,

4/5/2012 4:50 AM This letter is dated February 10, 1931. It is addressed to "my dear and devoted niece Malkele, her husband and daughter". He says he had to write first to his daughter-in-law (no name mentioned)in Newark to get his niece's address, that is why it took him so long to write and to thank her for her present. He goes into a long and detailed description of how badly his brother-in-law (her uncle) Peissekh treated him when he had just arrived in America and this brother-in-law changed his mind about going to Pittsburg. He is sorry that after crossing such a big ocean he had no opportunity to meet her mother and brothers and their wives and children. He wants to thank her, her husband, her children and her sister for something he will never forget.

This is as far as I can go no right now (more or less the content of three pages).
Hope this helps and that some other volunteer can help some more.
Happy Passover!
