I know this is a bill written in Yiddish. I would like to get a complete translation of the bill if possible. Any details for any portion would be most helpful. What is the bill for? Who is billing whom? Could it be related to Rabbi Abraham Alperstein's death which was a few months earlier? Thank you!
