Not sure about the 'du' the second letter is stained. Context: A phrase located in a letter (from a Jewish family) in which a son is telling his father that he would be glad to help his brother to go to college.

    I agree, do mit/דאָ מיט (in Yiddish often spelled as two words) makes most sense. But I think is has the literal meaning of damit here, viz. with it/that.
