A full translation: "Dear Mrs. Baum - I recieved your dear letter dated on the 12th and 22nd. You cannot possibly imagine how happy it made me. We are glad that our Sabine writes to you. We are without any information for the past two months. Dear Mrs. Baum, what shall I write? Life is extremely difficult here. As long as we have a little money we can exist. What lies ahead only our dear God knows. AS long as I know that my Bertili is with Grete and Josef my dying would be more peaceful and I will be reuinted with my son. Dear Mrs. Baum, money can be sent, writing is not possible [this is underlined in red]. We live with one other family in one room. How are you and your sister? How are my borthers and sisters? And Mrs. Leiduer? My husband and I send greetings to you and your sister.

Hearty good wishes,

A. Fisch
