11/15/2021 10:34 AM The top line could be saying "This is Goldi's" (or Golde's)
The text is addressed to "my much beloved sister" and possilbly the next word is some variation of Golde.

After the usual "we are all well thank God, hope to hear the same from you" the writer says she (he?) hopes to meet in happiness and is sending a picture of "me and my child". Then they ask for a letter "about you" and hope for a rapid reply.
There is no name, and though I tend to think the writer is a female, that's not necessarily clear in the text.
