I greet you with my whole heart and I kiss you, my dear soul. Your card just reached me, and it is a big honor to me. I was happy to receive the card, but the card did not make me happy because you are telling me that you are sick again. I am really getting crazy because of worries about your health. Mean fate, which is expecting us in Paris, and praying to God about your health, so you recover soon and feel healthy forever. Please God, one day stop it forever and let that day be the happiest of our lives. These last days of my staying in my home, which I have to leave behind, that I would give for that a half of my life, last days in my next. It is really horrible. I am waiting for a nice letter from you Instead I received sad news. It made me feel really upset, so I barely can sit. Please tell me, how’s your health now? Did they take your tooth away? My God, it’s such a pain, but please be healthy, my dear soul, my dear Polinka. Now I’m telling you that I am going to travel with a passport, but not under that person’s name I mentioned before, but under somebody else’s name, and it is going to cost me money, but everything will be good. I am happy. Do you know? Sonia Flickman is going to travel with me to Paris. You know her. She’s the daughter of that person who lives on Politseyskaya Street. They learned that I am going to leave for Paris. They came to me and asked for my promise that I will be traveling with her. They said they wouldn’t trust anybody else, and it is suck luck that she’s going to go with me. And it is going to be a good thing for me, too, that I will be having someone to travel with, because I doubt that Gutman is going to go. He is really afraid that he can’t find such king of job as he has now. On the 15th of April, I quit. In the beginning of April, I think I will be in the hands and arms of my soul. On Monday, I am going to send paperwork, and I am going to pay him two rubles to expedite it. You should be here in Kishinev to see how many people are surrounding me and asking different kinds of questions about my leaving. Nobody understands what’s going on. Nobody knows, of course, to whom I go. I’m just telling them that I might travel through Paris. Now I am realizing how much respect I have among my friends because each and everybody is interested in my departure, but I’m not telling anybody except for my mother that I go to you and from there we are leaving for America. Can I imagine what is going to happen at the store when I tell them that I am going to leave? It’s going to be strange for them. I think, Polinka, I am not going to say good-bye to them. What would be your advice? I already collected all the money I need and I putit  into a specific place. We will have about 500 rubles, but there are certain expenses on my way to Paris. I had always a decent life, and had to save kopek after kopek. I wrote a letter to my sister to America today and told her that I will be leaving for Paris on the 25th of April, and I also gave her your address at which I should expect the shipscard. I have no doubts that after this letter, she is not going to send the shipscard because I told her I have enough money to reach Paris only and I will be expecting her letter over there. I am going to transfer the money to your name through the bank. What is your advice? I am going to take all luggage. Do you think that’s fine? Don’t you think it’s going to cost a lot? If you have a better plan. Please tell me. I am going to Harrak just to find out if my eyes are healthy. I also need to fix one of my teeth. Do you think it’s worth it? In one word, my darling, I am going to describe in details all current events and news You offended me this week, Polinka, because you wrote little. Please tell me if you received my letters and newspapers. If you are not receiving the newspapers accurately, it’s just because I put some notes on them. Tell me, my darling, if you received the newspaper which had a little note enclosed in it. It’s just interesting to know. You are going to laugh at me about it. Tonight when I went home, Misha Greenberg with his daughter stopped me[ in Yiddish] but they asked a few questions and they also asked to greet you. But what’s interesting is that he criticized me a lot. I was in a hurry to go home, but I only received a postcard. I wish you to recover soon and not feel any pain any more. Are you receiving letters from Tsillie? Please write a lot and everything in details about your way, about what’s going to happen, what did you hear from B.J., how you are doing. I am waiting for a letter in details. Meanwhile, please stay healthy and happy. I hug you, I kiss you, and love you with my whole heart. I am longing for you, and I am suffering without you. I work less right now, and the weather is beautiful, but I do not go out without you. I even didn’t enjoy the fresh spring air yet. All the best, my beloved hear. I’ll see you soon.

Sincere greetings to all of yours.
