Beloved Relatives! 

I am living at Agricultural School. I have visited all the relatives. They are doing well. No news about mother. Have you any?  I am feeling very well here. Answer soon.

Your letter has revived us.  Mother wrote that she is healthy.  Mother Grandmother wants you in Yeshiva, by no means in agriculture. Grandfather died 16 December, inform the relatives. Learn Mishnayot, his wish.

11 February 1942

        Chaye’s father.

        This date stamp is in the same lettering as the French language date “11 FEV. 1942” stamped on the back.  Therefore 21 December 1941 is apparently a date on which this message was in Geneva (which it was, as shown by the Geneva Red Cross stamps) on its way from Palestine to Nitra.

        Your mother and grandmother.

        Rav Yissochor Berish Beer.

        Chaye’s mother.

        This is apparently a date on which this message was in Geneva on its way back from Nitra to Palestine.  Another date stamp on the front shows that the message was received back in Jerusalem on 14 May 1942.
