Eau  Claire 13th June in '82
Dear Sister!
I must once more take my simple pen and send you a  few lines.  I  am  living
 so  well and hearty, and nothing do I lack and the same I wish to hear from
you and Mher.  It  is awhile ago since I wrote you but have received nothing
for a long  time  but nevertheless I hope that you are in the best of health.
 As far as news is  concerned  there  is  nothing other  than  that  Olaug
 A. Lillebordal is married to a man from Rennebo* and my cousin Gurra Andersdatter
is also going to get married to Anders Nilson Senn.  Thorval  T. Hoff  is
here  in Eau Claire and working, and his brother Ole is also here.  I wrote
a letter to you about whether you wanted to come here to America in case
i should send you tickets;  and I  have waited long for an answer but have
received nothing.  If you wan to come then you must advise me about it so
that I can send you tickets.
If you want to come then I will ask that you be a  good and  well-behaved
 girl, making diligent use of the Book and preparing yourself well for Confirmation
if you are studying for that.  Write me and inform me about you accopmlishments
and also your exact  age  and  how  you  live  and  in  what circumstances.
 Dear  Sister, write to me and tell me if you wish to come and then I will
write to you.      Live  well and  greet  Mother - that I am healthy and
well.  Carry on dear Sister and don't forget  to  write  to  me  soon.  Your
brother
