I cannot figure out from your letters how you are doing, what do you you do for living. Congratulations on the birth of your daughter. I wish her that she should grow up well and be a pride for her parents.

Two weeks ago I became an owner of my own car and when the roads dry out (spring is in full swing and it is quite warm) I will drive to Podhajce to visit mother. She is very happy with your fate, but she grieves because she might not see you ever again, because you are so far away.
----------------------------------
In honor of Father I build a very stylish, wooden synagogue in Porohy. Two years ago I became the president of the kahal in Solotwina. Grandfather Schilbaum would have never dreamed that his grandson, whom he considered the greatest goy, would ever be such a good Jew, but tempora mutantur (times change)....

I hope and expect that the good fate will let us see each other again. In the meantime the only way is to write.

I kiss you, your wife and the tiny Molly,

Your brother,

Jair? (signature not very clear)
