Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash:

A postcard mailed from Pabianice, stamped Judenrat in Pabiance, a subcamp ten miles southwest of Lodz (Litzmannstadt), from R. Sahberg to A. Sahberg of Detroit, Michigan. It reads: “My dear children, We received your card of April 12. The package arrived also and if possible, send us please coffee and tea. I am very happy that you send the money because I have been ill and need it. I plead with you that you do not forget your old and sick mother. If I receive money for the 5th time I will send you a card. I hope you stay well. Greetings and kisses to all of you. Your mother-sister. We received the second package via Portugal and are awaiting letters from you. Kisses and greetings to Alice and Mes."
