Letters from Szczuczyn
Letter 4:

This letter is undated, but the text suggest that it was written around June 23, 1937 and accompanied Letter 3
Letter with no envelope

Written by Wolf Kayman, Szczuczyn

Dear Eliezer,

I have written to you at our own address. I happen to be at Yedidi's who said that I can't be certain that my letter will reach you and suggested that I write again and send this letter together with this.

[There is a standard repetition of his blessings and good wishes]

Prices of food are going up. Corn is over thirty, potatoes six, black bread thirty-two to thirty-eight [currency is groschen per kilogram]. The rains have arrived. As I'm writing this, a downpour accompanied by hail has lasted two hours. Cattle have come down [in price] by fifty [percent].

[The letter finishes with the standard expressions and good wishes]
