This is the back of an envelope containing a letter to Lil Spiwak while she stayed with her father's sister's family in Capresti, Romania. The letter bears a US postmark on the front of Aug. 12.
Please can someone tell me about the place name "Sosire" on the Romanian postmark? And if you invert the image, can someone tell me the date it reached Capresti?

1/17/2012 2:55 AM Sosire = arrival. It seems that the letter arrived first to Timisoara, on 27 Aug, and was send by the post office to Capresti where it arrived on 30 Aaugust
