(There is an additional sentence in the margin of three of
 the four pages, as follows:)
I am supposed to greet you from Peder Sneen and family and
 Tarald Olsen Estenstad.
I must also greet you from K. Aspeggen.   And he wishes that 
you would write him a letter.
This time I want to send you my portrait as a remembrance of 
me.**
*The Meridean Mill spent most of its life under the
 ownership of the Eau Claire Lumber Co.   It was located on 
Meridean Island,  in the Chippewa River, about nine miles 
south of Eau Claire.   It provided boarding houses on the
 premises for its workers, as did most of the mills.
** A copy of the portrait is included in this volume.   It
 is a likness of Anders at about the time of his 17th 
birthday - October 20, 1879.
