The message side of a card found in my father's papers, Can someone translate the message (ending on the other side)? The Hebrew script is difficult to read. I presume it had to relate to my father's work with the World Zionist organization. Who is the writer?

8/14/2017 6:22 AM I translated the other page first (my mistake) and this one is really long. A summary: To my dear friend Mr. Tchernichovsky, Thank you for your kind letters. Of course from such a far place I cannot feel what life and conditions you are experiencing. Cannot understand your objection to America and aspirations towards[?Lodz? continues to discuss life in Lodz(?)] No special news here in Copenhagen. Haven't heard from [Lodz(?)] for some time but I am in the habit of reading their Jewish newspaper.[goes on to discuss the paper and if I'm not mistaken a certain convention in Boston]
8/15/2017 2:56 AM Some additions - once again, thanks to the previous translator's work:

"No special news from me. There's a lot of work here. Life in Copenhagen too is boring. It's along time since I've received letters from Lodz from my relatives. However, I receive the Jewish newspaper frequently "Lodzer Volksblatt" (published by Lazar Cohen with the support of the German government) and there I find interesting news sometimes. My family is at a summer residence at present, and I too am going there now there for two weeks."

The reference to the convention in Boston comes now - and seems to be related to the failed plan to write Mr. Berlin (mentioned on the other side of the postcard).
