My father received this 1939 letter from his cousin Marianne Axtmayer, who had moved to Puerto Rico. I would appreciate a translation from the German. The second and third pages of the letter are posted separately. Thanks

Dear Kurtl,
We just received your card of Feb. 10 and we are devastated that you have not yet obtained the visa. Of course, we have sent you immediately upon your request the papers complementing the affidavit and assume that you have received them long ago.
From your dear mother and brother in Palestine we have mail quite regularly, you are their greatest concern. That you would not obtain the visa for here in time in Switzerland and you had to go back to Germany would be the most terrible thing.
I don't understand why they make you so much trouble given that we are certainly not the poorest ones and you will live and stay with us.
You already have a nice room here that awaits you, and Pauli is anxiously looking forward to taking you on trips by car through the local Wienerwald. Uncle Happy and Aunt Regina are, as you probably already know, also in Palestine, with their children.
