Mendele Personal Notices & Announcements

July 19, 2010

To minimize wear and tear on the untershames, three requests:

1. Send time-sensitive notices well in advance.
2. Send material as plain text:  no HTML, other coding, or attachments;and 
write MENDELE PERSONALS in the subject line.
3. Correspond directly with the person who or organization which has 
posted the notice, *not* with your ever-beleaguered untershames.

Subject: Sutzkever's Book Dedication

A friend owns a copy of Abraham Sutzkever's poem SIBIR in which he has a 
handwritten Yiddish dedication that she is unable to translate.  I am 
unable to send the actual dedication to Mendele since it is an image 
copied by my iPhone and not in plain text. Would some kind Mendele 
subscriber contact me for a copy of the image and translate it?  If so 
write to imayers at mac.com for the text's image.

Many thanks,
Irwin Mayers
