Postcard from Wolf

Sol Krongelb has a postcard dated December 13, 1912, from my great-grandfather Wolf Jacobowitz to his son, my grandfather Elias Jacobowitz at 7 Montgomery Street, Jersey City, NY. This is the address of the cigar store Elias managed with his brothers.

The return address is 112-14 E. 111th Street, NYC. Pretty far from the Lower East Side. The text is in Yiddish. The language is formal, in that Wolf signs his full name.
