|Victor ledgers note this selection as "Part 1." This indication does not appear on the recording. Ledgers note B-6637 "Part II." It is likely that the song on B-6637, "A Kaddisch'l der Mamen" was written as a follow-up to this song.|
|Irene Heskes writes, "Of the many songs about letters, sent or unsent, this one achieved the greatest popularity. It tells of a mother left alone in the Old Country, who waits for letters that never come. Her son in America receives a final letter telling of her death."|
