p.s. I'm learning Yiddish. if nobody will translate the letter itself, I can try with the vocabulary.

7/3/2020 12:40 PM As for the Yiddish, there are the next stanzas of the song "A Brivele der Mamen"
http://yidlid.org/chansons/briv-mamen/index.html.
The writing doesn't end with the last stanza, but with
"And she will recover, heal her pain, her bitter heart, comfort her mind."

So sad...
