This postcard was sent to Abram Spiwak in 1910. In order to know who, from his native town of Orgeyev, Bessarabia, was writing to him, I need a full translation of all the Yiddish on this card (there are a few words on the address side in addition to the message), as well as the Russian stamps and postmarks.

3/26/2018 9:30 AM Letter starts "Dear Chava!" and signed "-Yisroel".

A letter about writing letters back and forth, mentioning an address in a foreign language.
3/29/2018 11:00 AM The handwriting is little difficult to read, and the spelling isn't the best either. Following is the full translation as I understood the letter, (I put [?] for words I couldn't read).

Dear Chava, I'm not exited when we know from you that you finally received our letter. Your last letter that you wrote on a page of a book I almost know by heart, especially the line in the width. I read a lot between the lines... I'm ready to do everything for you. Write me a letter write yourself the address for a reply [some text in foreign language], then I'll have it myself, The child is better. I'll write you a letter [?] write [?] I beg you, I'll count the days.
-Yisroel
