Postcard addressed to Mrs. I Rabinovitch, contains lakeside view with trees, property and mountains in background. Handwriting on back reads: "My dear Eva. Just arrived to Lucerne and found your two letters which meant very very much to me. I really am lonesome for you and boodie. The experience of being so far away from you two is not at all pleasant. It seems that we are much better off when we are together. Well, after Warsaw - beautiful Switzerland proves to be a tonic. I have not yet seen very much of Lucerne, but it seems to be a real dream. Love to boodie, Rab.
