Dear wife Shoshinke may you live!

I read your greetings and your father's letter with much joy. I thanked God I was already reading a greeting from you in the time which God has fortunately helped you overcome. The main thing is to thank God for his kindness until now towards us. He should help us in the new year with the right help. I am sending you greetings for the new year. Write to me all the time about your health, and how the child is doing may he live, I love you because you love me that you have fortunately born a child for me... And even after my request I still have no news to write to you, I have still not received any letters from America, write up for me whatever is written in that letter, stay healthy my love and just don't give up. Although you will say I should send you something, but as someone once said, it's astonishing I want to send you anything. You remember your mother's saying, zol gezunt zein (may you be healthy). But anyway with God's help a time will come for that as well, but for the meantime we still can't. From me your faithful husband who wishes you a good year together with all those I love. Avraham Bulbin
