Would like to get as complete a translation as possible. This may be related to another not from Rabbi Margolies that I will also upload.

9/24/2021 12:14 AM This is from late 1919.

Since the honored Rabbi Alperstein has been elected by the community to deal with things related to Judaism in our city he is hereby invited to a meeting that will take place in on Monday 19 May 1919 at 11 in the house of Dr. Mendes 99 Central Park West for a consultation concerning the rules necessary for keeping the religion in our community.

Signed by "his friend who wishes him happiness and success and respects and honors him and --- M. Z. Margaliyot"

[Comments]
"Margaliyot" [in the original] is the Hebrew version of the Yiddish "Margolies" - the Hebrew word means "pearls" or "jewels".

Rabbi Margaliyot's use of the third person is a sign of respect.
9/24/2021 4:38 AM Correction to date of letter:
The Hebrew year at the top is (תרס"ט) 5669, which is 1909 (not 1919). The date of the scheduled meeting is Monday, the 19th of Iyar 5669 (May 10, 1909)
