    Please help read this

    Please help me read this 100 years old handwriting on the back of a photo from my great-grandfathers album. I could read some words (15%).

    Посылаю я вам второе письмо
    и вот посылаю я вам
    Свою карточку на память
    Пришлите вы мне свои
    на память я Константин
    Павлов Николаев вам
    Просьба Спо**** что вы при**
    получите вы сразу ****
    **** мне

    (Written in old orthography and with many spelling mistakes.)

    I send you the second letter
    and here I send you
    my photo as a remembrance
    Send me your (photos)
    as a remembrance I am Konstantin
    Pavlov Nikolayev
    Please ***** that you *****
    will recieve you immediately ****
    **** me.

    Konstantin Pavlov Nikolayev nowadays should be "Konstantin Pavlovich Nikolayev"
    Konstantin - first name
    Pavlovich - patronymic (son of Pavel)
    Nikolayev - last name
    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?
