This postcard was in a stack of mail found after my mother, Celia Margolin, died years ago. I would like a (summary) translation of the card to determine whether it was written to her, contains any family related information to her and might help in filling in more of the family tree than I now have. 1911 happens to be the date she graduated from the Minsk Dental School and a picture on the reverse side of the card shows an anatomy class doing a dissection of a young corps.

1/3/2020 5:48 AM It is addressed to her, Miss Cyla M. Margolin, dentist, and sent poste restante to Ratomka train station. The text is really devoid of personal or genealogic substance. It is written by a female friend or relative who is very familiar with Cyla. I think she may have signed her name at the top of the vertical text but I cannot make anything of that.
