Postcard Message (Translated)

Dear Romkje,

You have to share the same fortune with Anna and Cato by being content with this card.

Much salvation and blessing with the commencement of the New Year.  I shall write to you soon.  On such a card one can write so little.  Things are going very well with me.

Greetings from you loving Brother.
