3/4/2020 2:19 PM to America [words in Yiddish] to escape from this hell. I'm expecting to receive a letter from Regina this week, you know Regina, that these shoes and (?) were just right for Renusia (nickname from Renia/Renata), I can't recall whether I wrote last week that I sent some things from my deceased daughter to the grandchildren of uncle Icchok.

You will receive more than one blessing [word brucha used], I also sent them a few things to mend before use: socks and a few things from my Wowek.

It seems I wrote everything about what I gave to whom. Yesterday was Saturday, so I put on a chiffon dress, I tell you [more Yiddish].

Zosienka (nickname for Zofia), a 40-year-old woman lives here, she constantly preaches about how good she looks for her age, so I tell her: if you could see my 50-year-old sister, you'd look 90 next to her, because in the past year, you must know, she (my sister) was at a wedding, where there were beautiful young women, and a man with much experience (of female beauty) said that she was the most beautiful [more Yiddish]

Regina, I asked at Weil's, and they told me: [more Yiddish], if you want me to go to him, then write to me.

Keep well,

your Hela
