11/5/2020 1:17 PM Even though I can translate the first line into a sentence, according to German grammar it's incomplete, so unfortunately you don't have all of this letter. She is to be a fortunate mother - I've already written to her twice, and not received a reply, maybe the address was was wrong, I've just asked Dora to send me a correct address, then I'll write her again. Now, as I've already written enough, I'll close my letter for this time. - by wishing you and your dear Kessie? [Not sure of 1st letter] a proper happy, fortunate year, greet and kiss you and my dear Kessie/Bessie untold times, your always loving you and wishing you the best Aunt Sophie.
my husband and children send you heartfelt greetings. Anschinka? Mischinka? doesn't want you send the photos, becase they didn't turn out well, but she'll never arrive at good photos. - Mischinka [? first letter uncertain] is also just now writing to the grandparents, because there's no room in my letter, and requests his greetings to be passed on. La Meme [The Same in French]
PS - the first letter in 'Briefe' = letter in the next to last line solves the question of Kessie/Bessie in favor of Bessie
