Full Translation

Dear Sala, I received your card and read it with great pleasure. But the words, "Your letter was very cold, how do I deserve this" caught my eyes. Dear Sala, you're nitpicking. You know that I can't write in German. I can't write at all how I feel. You have no idea how much I miss you. Only now I understand what it means not to have anybody, as little as we were together, and I don't know why this was so. But it was better then. I don't see the girls much these days. I'll go over to Gucia now to show her your letter. I sent you the photo; write immediately after you received it and then I'll send you the second. I would love to see you. In the second letter I'll write you more. I wanted to write you a card in Polish but I have a little interpreter who helps me. Reply right away, from your Sala [Rabinowicz]. Regards to your Ala. The girls send warms regards. I kiss you, Glika. I send you thousand kisses on this occasion, Frymka.
