Catalan term or phrase: ?Per que tot esta segeir?
A personal letter
Adalita
English translation:Why all this secrecy?
Explanation:
This is just a wild guess, since your sentence must be mispelled.
Are you sure of "segeir". Could it be "sigil"? And it cannot be "tot esta", but "tot este" or "tota esta". You are not translating from Catalan, but Valencian: "xicoteta", "esta", "camine" (with -e ending), are characteristical words from this variant.

Good luck
