The most interesting thing about it is that the writer - Baruch Lifshitz - is using a nickname for his "best friend": "Zev'l" -- which comes from the Hebrew name Ze'ev.
Ze'ev is literally "wolf", and Zev'l is a very Yiddish way of making it into a nickname or diminutive.

Here too, the last name's last syllable is "berg" and not "werk".

"Nili" near the date.
