Close Up Seeking translation of some very old Yiddish letters

My mom recently found some old letters, probably written to her grandmother from "the old country". I think they are written in Yiddish and we'd love to know what they're about... could be mundane stuff like trips to the market or bar mitzvh news, or might be something much more interesting-- who knows!
Unfortunately our knowledge of Yiddish is limited to a few words spoken around the house, and we'll never make it very far in reading these letters. I have scanned them and was wondering if anyone would be interested in reading them and sharing what they're about.
There are several pages, and they don't seem to be complete, but for someone with some free time and a passion for Yiddish, this could be a fun couple of hours.
I have uploaded the scans here: http://picasaweb.google.com/adamcohn/Yiddish
If you click the magnifying glass button on the photo pages, you can zoom in to see them better.
If anyone is interested in helping translate these, our family would really appreciate it; the mystery is intriguing us all!
Thanks!
Adam
