Letters from Dotnuva (cont.)





Translated by Sara Mages

  Estimated date - 15, August 1936
My dear sister and brother-in-law, and my beloved daughter Freida.

May you live in peace.

How are you my dear, how is Morris feeling, is he fully recovered, I wish to hear good news from you. My love, I thank you very much that you worry about as and look for a way to improve our situation and our health. We recovered a little.

My beloved Freidale, write long letters, what's new by you, how is your aunt feeling and how is her health, how are your studies coming along. Have you gotten used to the American life. We have a bit of a mess [Note: it seems that the Kagan family lived with them when they built their house - Danny]. Ete is organizing the house, they will move to the house soon. Father traveled with Ete to Jonava [Yanove] and they bought timber and windows. They will also make the doors facing the street in Jonava because it is cheaper there. They have enough problems.

In Kosova they were very satisfied with the guests. Bat-Sheva is staying with Gershon often, and they are happy with her when she is not asking for money. We asked her to come to us, but she can't travel. Brone, Gershon's wife, is ready to give birth. Bat-Sheva is interested in Gershon's family. I am quite pleased, he's not a bad man, Ete received a lot of aid from him.

The same news continues here, we wait and hope for better times. A new year is arriving, and without a doubt good things will come to all of us.

Wishing you, your sister, sister-in-law, and your loving mother, Nechama

Warm greetings from me to our friends.
