IHoping to identify person on left. Right is my paternal grandfather, Abraham Abramovitch/Abrams. Went from Vilnius to Chicago c. 1905. Back is a postcard in Yiddish. ‘I am sending regards to my beloved son-in-law and ..daughter and grandchildren. May you all be well/healthy. Beloved daughter, I am sending you three pictures of your brother, Alter, two pictures for you and one for Zalman. I ask that you write me whether you have received the money and you should also write this down for me on the pictures. Send me letters often and I will send you more money. Further, I can write you that we are thank God, well/healthy. However, if we did not have to be in America, it would be better for us; I would not have such trouble from your sister, Kreine Yente. She was a murderess in Europe and here, ever more so. Write me whether you have [received] letters from your in-laws. What do they write to you and how is your sister-in-law, Yudes, doing? Has she perhaps gotten married? “
