Sara is enclosing here your picture, when you’ve received it, then write, then she will send you the rest of what you asked for. Nu, stay well, live well.

I am giving your postcard to [I’m guessing it’s “the girls”] and I will ask them to write to you. Write as soon as you receive my postcard. I am [bottom right corner of the page obliterates the word – can’t make out the rest of the sentence]. Maybe it/she(?) will come two days later. On the side of the page: Best regards to you Sala. In the postcard I will write much more.
