I would like a translation of the the entire page please. This is the back of a letter, so it may start mid-sentence. The other half of the page is ripped. Will send the fragments in a separate jpeg. The letter is written to Hyman Abramson in New York to inform him of the death of Hyman's deceased wife's brother Yechil Michl Ponarsky in Russia. Sent by Shmerl(Shmaryahu) Isaacson living in Toronto, whose widowed daughter recently arrived from Russia via England with 3 of her children. The other 3 children, detained in England for health reasons, were due to arrive soon.
