[From Andrew Lee]
                                   Drummond Wis  5 June [1898]
Dear brother
      It  is  now  quite  a  long  time since I received your
 letter which I have not yet answered but I hope you    forgive
me,  too  late  is  I  suppose better than never.   I am still
 managing up here in Drummond but I dislike the place so much
that it is my determination not to be here    longer  than  at
 the   most  the   4th of  July   and  maybe  I will leave here
immediately for all that.
      It rains up here almost incessantly so the prospects for
 a good harvest this year are good.
      The war is still going on, but we don't feel any of its 
effects   this  far  north.  The   only  thing  is  that  hard
liquor   and  tobacco  have  become   more  expensive, say the 
people who use such things.   The cost of the war amounts   to
three million dollars a day.
      I  will  not  be  concerned  with news this time.   In a 
letter from Elling I see that    they  have  their  new  house
ready and have moved in.   As you know, he is a farmer now.
      With   that  a  greeting, but   don't  forget  to  write 
immediately and tell me some news.
      Are there   some who  die   and  some  who  are  getting
 married?
      Good-bye.
                                                    Andrew Lee
      My  address remains 725 Water St. as George Hagen sends 
my letters.
