Postcard from Wolf Translated

Henny Lewin, who taught a course in Yiddish that I took at UVM, was kind enough to attempt a translation of Great Grandfather Wolf's postcard to his son, Elias, my grandfather.

The original image annotated.

Sol Krongelb's earlier rough translation:

My dear son,
I feel, thank G-d, much better on my heart. You have apparently found out already from Moshe Aryeh Hospethal (hospital?) that you are all well. Regards to your dear Leah & your dear children. Many times.
Your parents, Wolf and Refka Jakubovitz
and wishing you a good Shabbos
