Well Last try.can someone please translate this for me.Thanks jay
This letter is from the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp. Give me a bit & I'll try to translate a bit more, I just woke up, but it appears to be a letter from an inmate at KZ-Sachsenhausen. You'll note that the header in top-upper-left says "Konzentrationslager Sachsenhausen Oranienberg bei Berlin". Oranienberg is the name of the Berlin suburb where KZ-Sachsenhausen was located; I was actually there myself in 2003.

My dear wife and good boys! I recieved your dear letter of 8th of this month with great joy and thank you. Also to smaller ones of unknown source. I am thank god healthy and glad that the same is the case with you. I enjoyed it a lot, that you described your business (economy), as I can see that you are [unreadable word]. I am a bit concerned about dad. Beloved MIstress[?] If the adept allows, don't regret the money, make the journey. The son does not seem to be concerned about your visit but you would rather have a big opportunity to see the work of you brother Peter [?]. It does not seem to be so dangerous and [unreadable words]. Should I also write a few words to Gerhard and thank him for his efforts? I did not recieve anything from him. I am very glad that sister Paula and her family are well. Hugs and kisses for you all. Also Greetings to Sko[unreadable] and to all people we know.

The Name of the Prisoner seems to have been Lorenz Janovski, his wife's name Johanna.
Looks like a trivial letter if you don't know how horrible the situation for all probably was an how much of information had to be placed between the lines.
