Notes
-  "A little letter from Russia." A letter arrives from an old mother left behind in Russia. She tells of great hardships there, cruel tsarist edicts, poverty, and pogroms. She blesses her children who are now in free America. Like other popular brivelehs (letter songs) of the time, there is an underlying didactic message: Before it's too late, help your parents emigrate and join you here, or at least send back some money to help support them.
