Dearest Mathylda
Your dear (big?) card from 7. I have received.
Sorry my dear that I did annoy you that much with my discomposed card.
You are completely right, I am G- forbid, not despairing, I was in this mood just for a “minute”, thanks G- I am still hoping of a good ___
Your letter of the 27th/25? I received also, like also from („lundjen“ fan eng. Blad) [„lundjen together with an article from an englisch newspaper? Or with a sheet from lundjen? But I’am not sure Lundjen is a person…)] and have answered them already.
Because vacation leave they will see that it will be possible [Hebrew letters]
They will [surely try?] . Till then we shall have peace.
You all shall be greeted cordially
please answer
I kiss you and the children
