I greet cordially my dear parents, brothers and sisters, and to you my brother Jacob I ask if it may already be the time for counting and if they listen, tell them in my name as I am an experienced man that the more you count the better. And write me if you have mail from Eliyahu Zalman and from Yitzchak. Please write me everything. Tuvye Kretzmar.
