August 24, 1934
Dear brother Yerakhmiel,
I wrote you a p.k. [postcard] from Landal [in Broualan, a commune in the Ille-et-Vilaine department in northwestern France]. Now I am at a resort 70 kilometers from Paris. I am only staying here a couple of days.
I received your letter with the enclosure. I will eagerly reply to the letter when I am back in Paris.
The weather is nice here. Today I bathed in the river and rowed a boat.
How do you expect me to come to Palestine so quickly? First, one needs [to be able] to not work for a while and second, I must have at least 60 pounds for one month [or: I need 60 pound per month].
Translation from Yiddish original by Ri J. Turner:
Dear brother YerachmielI wrote you a postcard from London. Now I'm in a country house 70 kilometers from Paris. I'll be here for only a few days. I received your letter and the enclosure. When I'm back in Paris I'll go hungry and [therefore/then] deliver the letter. The weather is nice here. I swam in the river and paddled a boat today. How do you expect me to get to Palestine so quickly? Firstly, it's forbidden to work there, and secondly, I'd need at least 60 pounds per month.Khavetshe
