To my dear children be well
Dear Anna why haven’t you written a letter the whole week we didn’t know what to think yesterday mom and Betti went to your mother-in-law perhaps she has a letter she said that she received a letter Thursday but today your mother-in-law went to Serah she received regards from him as Joe was by you yesterday late at night and ate dairy rice and sweet corn your mother-in-law was here to reassure us she said all signs only that we should be calm now it’s 10 o’clock and we want to go to sleep mom called out perhaps we might still get a letter today we hear the bell ringing I went down right away and took the letter that you barely remembered to send ??? write letters every day we wish you joy and health from me ??? Yosef Tilles
