It appears to be town Solec.

There are several towns by this name in Poland (town name is associated with the salt mines or salt recovery). 
The largest town with close to one thousand Jewish population was also known as Solec nad Wisłą (Solec on Wisla River) and Solec Sandomierski, (close to large Kielce region towns Radom and Ostrow Swietokrzyski).

Hi Neil,
I believe it is Wola Solecka, a colony in the gmina of Lipsko. There are Rozenblatts in Lipsko (JRI Polnd).

My family is from Brest-Litovsk.  According to one of the family member's Naturalization papers which were prepared in 1903, it clearly indicates he was born in "Saletca" a town in Poland in 1873.  I have not been able to locate a town called "Saletca".  It appears to be spelled Saleteca to me, but Ancestry.com indicates the place was spelled Seletea.  Any assistance or insights would be appreciated of where this town is located or what other town they could have been referring to?

Brest-Litovsk is close to the Belarus / Poland border that area has been part of Grodno guberniya during the period of the Russian Empire and at time before and after part of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, Poland, Soviet Union and Belarus.  So it wasn't surprising to see he was born in Poland, but where is Saletca?
