Earlier this month, I wrote about finding a letter in Simon Mitchneck's 1919 passport application from his sister Dora, detailing the hardships the family was enduring in WWI's aftermath. Simon didn't take his planned 1919 trip, and he applied for another passport in 1922. In this application, he included a translation of a letter from his sister Toba (who was getting married in 1919) which shows that things were still difficult. At this time, the area around Torchin had transitioned for years as part of the Russian Empire to part of the newly-created country of Poland. Here is Toba's letter.
