This is the first page of four pages of a SINGLE LETTER written from my ancestor Perl Raskin Haikina, in 1923. The other 3 pages are also uploaded now, today, in Viewmate, with the names “LETTER PERLA 1”, “LETTER PERLA 2”, “LETTER PERLA 3” and “LETTER PERLA 4”.
I couldn’t upload the full letter in one single file, so, if possible, if you can help me translating all the 4 pages together?
Thank you in advance for this great help!

4/27/2021 1:08 PM Faithful children Isaac Leyb and Shifra. May you be happy, amen. As I begin to write you a letter I want to speak to you all, but my heart doesn't allow me to even talk in a letter. Oh God, take on my heavy heart already and help us already so we don't need to be so far away from each other. What is our life if I don't see my dear children? What is my life? Only wrap my heart with hope---.Now I write you about my health, that I and all of us are, praise God, in the best of health. I write you also that Chana was at our house and spent a nice time and went home. We wanted her to go back to Ekaterineslav. She said that it would be better for her to travel with us together.
