Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: Translation of front: "Hope you are well. I am pretty well except for the wound. Please send me the cough medicine whenever it is convenient for you. Yours [?] and kisses, your Oskar."

Translation of back: "Dearest Risa: Received your package in good condition yesterday and was overjoyed. Also the two cards from the 2nd and 3rd. As of today I received one letter, one note and two postcards. Risa in one letter you write that you will send me “covers.” I did not receive them. I wrote to the children but no reply to day. Sorry about Frank. Were you [?] Mrs. Mayer? Tomorrow I will send the laundry. With love and longing. I miss you. Your Oskar."
