Postcard Message (Translated)


Viola Dale July 30, '86

My good wishes for August 23.  I hope that this postcard arrives in time, according to my calculations a few days too early, but that is better than if it would arrive too late.  My husband and I are doing very well.  the new country suites me well, only it is very warm.  Last year, when we were all together for your birthday in March, I did not think to be so far away now.

With many greetings, also for Abraham Gerogette Money
