This is page 1 of 4 of a letter most likely in Yiddish dated January 1940. It has a seal indicating to me it comes from the area of Merkine Lithuania. I would like to know the basic contents of the letter and if there are any names included.

Addressed to dear and beloved Merel'e.
He mentions that he visited her parents - his future in-laws in Meretch (Merkine) on Chanukah.
He mentions names of people he met there (probably her siblings) Ethel'e and Pesshe Chaya'le.
Other names he met in Meretch, (probably friends) Stisha'le, Kuna'le and Shevach, (Shevach is also mentioned before, he might be her brother or a very close friend)
