Can anyone please translate this postcard written in Yiddish for me? The postcard was most likely written to my grandparents who moved from Krynki, Poland to the US between early 1900's (my grandfather) through early 1910's (my grandmother).
My grandparents names were: David Blake (Blecher) and Rose Mank (Rachel Maniches).
You can email me directly at: or though this site.

Thank you,
Robin Gordon Koerner
