This was found among my grandmother Minnie Kishner (nee Kaplan) papers. At the time she was living in London, uk and she was now a widow, She was in touch at that time with her brother who lived in New York and I believe he was inviting her to come over to the USA which she never did.

Any help with the translation would be much appreciated.

I became............to read your misfortune that befell you. Dear faithful sister Minnie, write to me what happened.......your poor Shep(?).......you and the children and how to you make a living? Sister Minnie, I would like to write so much that no paper would be .........to write..........until I get a letter from you.....then I will.......
