I am attempting to piece together the Handgriff family of which little is known. I am hoping these postcards will hold some clues. Any information from the postcard would be appreciated. Many thanks.

Dear Victor,
We received your card, and we expect from you a comprehensive report about your activities in Prossnitz and about how you like it. Everything is fine with us, and we remain with many greetings, the Rosenb[??] family

Notes:
1. The town is not Pressnitz because Pressnitz is in Bohemia, there is no such town in Moravia. It is Prossnitz, today's Prostějov in Moravia
49° 28′ 19″ N, 17° 6′ 42″ E.

2. There is something looking like a tear that goes through the word "Familie" that obscures the second "i". If you have the original, look at it with a magnifying glass to make sure that there is no descender in the word. I am pretty sure that this is not a name (sorry).
