Please help with any translation. Letter is both German and Yiddish. I believe it has something to do with travel.
I have a translation of the German portion.

Letter is upside down. My apologies.

2/3/2017 9:13 AM Liebster Benö!
Dich ersuche ich zugleich
sich bei den Singer’schen oder
Schweit’schen zu erkundigen
bei welcher Gesellschaft sie
die Schiffskarten lösen, nachdem
ich mit denen nicht zusammen-
kommen kann. Bei derselben
Gesellschaft willst Du mir
auch meine Karte lösen + mir
solche in Begleitung von
wenigstens f20.- bald-
möglichst einsenden.
Übermorgen d. h. Donnerstag
fahren wir von hier ab

Dear Beno! I would also ask you to inquire at Singer's or Schweit's with which company they will buy the ship tickets, since I cannot get together with them. You should also buy a ticket for me from the same company and send it to me in the company of at least aforint 20.- as soon as possible. We will leave from here on Thursday
2/3/2017 9:23 AM Correction:
... together with forint 20.-

Forint is the Hungarian currency.
2/15/2017 1:32 PM The Yiddish section of this letter (or the other page) says it is written in Pest [Budapest] and refers to visits to 3 eye specialists, complains that everything is so expensive, and she cannot afford it and cannot stay there too long.
