Please translate this letter (page 1/2) written, most likely, to my grandmother, Bessie/Basia (Benjamin, her husband). Malka and Rosa (her sisters) are names within the letter.

Wishing all a very happy and healthy New Year!

"You should know that I have Noach and Rubtsen (at home)and not much at all. Once in awhile I send her what I can. "
