Hi!

What is written is this:
"Dostał z polskiej 3-16-65 nazad od mojej siostry.
To jest nasza fotografia po ślubie 25 lipca 1911."

What is means is this:
"I got this back from Poland, from my sister, March 16, 1965.
It is our photograph of our wedding 25th of July, 1911."

The person writing it would seem to have been in the U.S. for a while, because the first date is written in American style, month-day-year, whereas the second date is written in Polish style, day-month-year. The word "Dostał" indicates that a man is writing it (unless there is a bit of dialect going on here).

Best regards,
Sophia
