this page is upside down-but it's not the problem. The pages, you posted, are very small and hardly to read. Is it possible for you, to send new scans with a much higher resolution?

To my dear children- they all shall have a long life with joy and pleasure(as well). First I can tell you, that we are- thanks to the Dear Lord- healthy. Hopefully, I'll hear the same from you.
Secondly, I'd like to tell you, that Olyu with the children have rented
a weekend house
in Ile by(?) Paltine(n), and Olyu will also visit the weekend home, but not very often, because he won't have much time to sit in the weekend house...
He hopes, that his business will improve, xxxxxxxxxxxxx,
he therefore didn't send me more than 5 Rxx for 10 months,
and, of course, I'm very worried, because my business isn't cost-covering,
and, since I must send clothes to Feyga in Kilm (??)and to Zeyke, we come to nowhere...
but we have to (support) Feyga and Zeyke, because they- God forbid- shall not have to sit in their rooms(,only)...
Therefore, I will remain being a xxx, until the Lord will have mercy on me,
and I will be able then to pay off the debts. Meanwhile, and what adds insult to injury, Zeyke just breathes down my neck and {doesn't think about changing anything quickly ???]....
I also will tell you about Doba, she is in xxxx now,
and has a little(?)
income, and they all are- thanks God- healthy, with their sons learning at the
academic highschool,
and Malche is- thanks God- healthy, God shall give her health and long years together
with her husband and the children. Zem (?) also is xxx and ekes out a living with all the expenses, but she is much calmer than Dobe, God may have mercy on them,
to endure their hard business and, especially, also the rent(???),
for (?) providing(?) a horse for(?) xxx and be in competition with
