While you're waiting for someone here to decipher it, I suggest you upload it to ViewMate at JewishGen.

Thanks so much Bookbox - I didn't know of that site.  I really appreciate your help!

Hello,

A brother called Ze'ev is indeed named. Ze'ev is the Hebrew word for "wolf" and the brother's Yiddish name would have been Volf, which is derived from the German word for "wolf".

The response for "Will attend wedding" contains an acronym, whose exact meaning is unclear. However, the first two Hebrew words (lo yihyeh) preceding the acronym mean "will not be".
