Scope and content

This letter is incomplete. Olga writes to wish Adolph a happy birthday. She has not heard from the Brodskys for 14 months although she has written many times. Nor has she heard from Leon for 14 months. Olga is well and working harder than ever but the family has suffered great misfortunes: Marie, Georges and Iurek have all been killed: dead, like hero-martyrs. Wara is becoming weaker. Olga will soon send Adolph the address of Gabriel Picard with the request to ask him if Leon has arrived in France. Olga last had a card from him in Finland or near Finland en route for the War. The letter is written in French, and is dated 18/5 Mar.
