Utena 1913

This is an Imperial Russian postal stationery sent in 1913 from Уцяны/Utsyany (now Utena, Lithuania), Ков (Kovna/Kaunas Gubernia) to Варшава/Varshava (Warszawa/Warsaw, Poland). The sender is obviously Jewish, you see on the back the Hebrew text which I have absolutely no idea what is it written about unfortunately. Utena was historically known for it's Jewish population, according to the 1875 Russian census, 75% of the population of the city was Jewish. It has a nice arrival cancel of Варшава/Warszawa.
