This was part of a letter written to my grandmother, Pearl(Perele) Wexler, by her sister, Malca. Pearl was in Montreal Canada and Malca was still in Romania. She was worried about her son, Herscu, who had escaped and was making his way to Paris and safety. I would like to know what the letter says.Part of the letter was written in Romanian, which has been translated for me.

Botosani, 23 November, page 1
My beloved and intelligent sister. Yesterday I received your letter. I believe that you have received a letter from me at the same time.... I am giving 2 marks from what you sent and adding 60 Lei (Romanian currency) it costs me less.... David...I will get a letter from Pearl tomorrow. Now dear sister, I already wrote you 3 letters ..I've been worried for 3 weeks...from not knowing...I haven't slept, my nerves are bad. Today I got a telegram from my nephew that everything is fine. I await from Jiyin? that he will telephone. You will know sooner than I will. We must ... the saying, "better late than never". Now I'm a bit calmer because I imagine that they are together. They will see one another with you.
