Postcard from Wolf Jacobowitz to his son Elias Jacobowitz postmarked Dec 13, 1912, 1 PM, New York Station, N.Y.
(stamp) W. Jacobowitz 112-14 E. 111th St., New York

(To) Mr Elias Jakubovitz, 7- Montgomery St, Jersey City, NJ.

In Yiddish:

Henny Lewin, my Yiddish teacher, provided a translation, first a transliteration with annotation, and then English.

B'H (B'ezvas hashem) with G-d's help. (I can not make out the rest of this first line. I think it relates to the Parsha of that week).

Lieber zohn. Ich fiele g'___ ganz besser oyf__ __ du' hast warshayntlich bay'__ shon erfahren hoffen das ihr alle gezund zind.. Grisen dich dayne liebe Leah & liebe Kinder, tsu fiel mal dayne eltern Wulf & Rifka Yakubovitsh. Vinshen guten shabbes. 112 E 111 St

(As you can see, the Yiddish is very Germanic. I put it above in the way he spelled it, only in Latin letters (It seems someone tried to decioher the words bty writing above the words they could make out, (it was Sol Krongelb) that's why it looks like a shadow). The punctuation below is mine. Henny)

"Dear Son, I feel G-d (thanks) much better upon _____. You have, probably, by ___ already found out. Hope that you all healthy are.. Greeting you (regards from/to) your dear Leah & dear children, too many times. Your parents Wolf and Rivka Yakobowitsh. 112 E 111 st. Wishing good Sabbath."

(Sol Krongelb pointed out how formal was the salutation.)

Rivkah is listed as Regina Jacobowitz, age 69 as having immigrated in 1902. This is different from the SS Suevia passenger list, which shows her arriving in 1886. Did she return to the old country and then re-immigrate?
