I believe this is a postcard written to my grandfather - Harry Shuel. He lived in NYC and his family was from Latvia. I would like this postcard translated, if possible. Thank you!

Bessie wrote to me last week that she was by you and aunt. After her writing I understand a lot about you. But dear Ida I ask you to write to me about yourself. It bothers me very much that we are not together now I know that you would feel much different I hope you will not feel so bad for long. I also felt bad the first few months but believe me it all pays you have so much pleasure afterwards from a baby. The baby is quite right but little too dark she is starting to walk. I send my friendly regards, Mister Furma...
Sam is sending his regards as well, also your dear cousin Luna
