A Letter from Solomon Salman to Leo, 1945

Solomon was the brother of Roza Salman, wife of Zina’s brother, Moses “Mietek” Salamon.
 
Scroll down for typed out Polish, with English translation.  (Thank you, Ari!)
 
From a book called “G.W.” by Eddie Lunsford, p. 276 :
 
I was pleased when the Tannery finally opened back up for a while.  Some Jews from up north bought it out.  The main fellow’s name was Solomon.  I went back to work for him for a pretty good spell.  He kept it going good for a while.  He fizzled out with it before long though.  Many times, I would run the place practically by myself.  A few others worked down there during that time too.  Well, finally it shut down for good.  Everyone hated to see that happen.  I went ahead and took my retirement at that time and started making a draw of my social security.
 
Also this, which mentions Solomon owning a house, and having a daughter:
 
 
I have been told that Roza Salman’s family had a tanning factory in Minsk before the war and a chicken farm in New Jersey for a while, either before or after North Carolina. Because they owned a factory, they were deemed enemies of the people by the Bolsheviks, and at some point they “escaped” to Nazi-controlled Poland to get away from the communists.
Kochany Lolku, 
 
Staramy sie dostać wizy dla Mietka i Klarusi, wiec w papierach jest pytanie ile oni mają braci i siostry, ich imiona, ile oni mają lat i T.d. (Tak dalej). 
Prosze natychmiast napisac wrzystko co Lolku jest wiadomo w tej sprawie.
Pozatym nic nowego.
Czekam na odpowiedź !
 
Dear Lolek, 
 
We are trying to get visas for Mietek and Klara, so in the papers it is asked how many brothers and sisters they have, their names, how old they are and so ​​on. 
Please write down all that Lolek knows about this matter.
Apart from this nothing new.
I am waiting for a response !
 
Sol
