I am guessing the last two words are "Kaplan" plus a first name. Can anyone decipher other words? This is text that appears on the back of a photo of a woman. Thank you!

9/8/2021 5:23 PM Hi Alexander, sadly I can't read or speak Russian, I had to ask for a travel document translation some years ago.
The reason for my reply to your request is your name & your country of interest. My name is Bernie PRESS & my ancestors came from Lithuania to London,UK in 1898. It now transpires that it was a small PRESS family group.
If you have a distant ancestor Girsh (Harris) PRESS DOB abt 1840, Nathan Press DOB 1874, who lived in Siauliai, Lithuania (Russia then) or any other PRESS, then I would like to hear from you. My details or on Jewish Gen.
Good luck with your research...........Bernie Press
