This postcard was sent to Barnett (ne Boruch) Burstein. It may be from his aunt, Liba Burstein Udin.

I'd appreciate as full a translation as possible.

The upper right hand corner was torn off, probably because of the stamp.

Thank you.

I received your letter. Apologizing for not responding sooner. I have a lot of work now. I’m writing a postcard but in a few days I’ll have more time and will write in more detail.
I’m glad that you’re happy with America, not you all have to find jobs. I ran into your mother yesterday and she told me that you write her very good letters and she asked if you write me the same kind of letter, because she has doubts that they’re truthful. I reassured her. She is moving to a different apartment in a few days.
I have no news. Write me more and don’t pay attention that I don’t.
Be well. [signature not clear, possibly Oldya]
Regards to Meier and Iosif.
Kiev, Khorevaya Street, 31, apt 27.
