This is the first of a 4 page letter from my great grandmother Faige Leah Schatz to my Grandmother who emigrated to the US. I need assistance with translation--not sure if this is in German or Yiddish with Latin script.
Thank you.

Main content:
I am healthy
Thanks for the letter and the money
The money you surely nipped off from your own needs, don't send any more, I have enough for this summer, and afterwards God will help you.
