Stamberg, ?, 1823.

All good to my nephew Itzik.
Since I happen to be in Stamberg now,
and circumstances do not permit that
I tell you in Münster that which I want
to write to you now. I have here discovered
that before the coming Spring you intend
to depart for America in the company of
your cousin (uncle) from Rheiner. I want
herewith to ask you in the most friendly
fashion, to let me know whether this rumour
is true or not. If such is really the case,
I should very much like to make the
journey with you, provided that you
find the idea pleasant. I hope that
you will let me know your opinion. In any
case, with many greetings,

Your loving uncle,

Aaron Abraham Leeser.

Dear Brother

I am herewith sending you the
Lasen Horen trager ? that you asked for. I think it
will meet with your desire. I should have been
glad to weave one for you, but had no time since
I am a house wife and in charge of seven chil-
dren, and am busy until ten o'clock at night
and after that one feels very tired and glad to
go to bed. When you have received this hasen-
trager, write to me about it. Also I have
heard that you want to go to America, so I
suppose that you will first come to pay me a
visit. I, too, am not disposed to remain
here with our aunt. I don't know what else
I might write to you. So farewell and
live contentedly.

Your devoted sister,

Leah Lippman

her I will write to her when I have
