    Translated as best as I could. It reads:


    “Świdnica, June 8th, 1914


    Dear sister, dear brother-in-law! I'm writing to tell you that I'm alive and well, thank God. I hope the same of you. Dear sister, I wonder why you never write me. Perhaps you forgot the address? My address is: Infantryman Malecha [?], 5/10 Świdnica Soldier's letter, personal business of the recipient I also want you to know that I'm going to be discharged in autumn. I'm also on the ????? here. Kind regards from your brother Franz

    I don’t have much info regarding Malecha. 20 days after this postcard was written Archduke Franz Ferdinand would be assassinated. I’m unsure if Malecha ever actually received his discharge but I would assume not.
