[From Andrew Lee] Eau Claire 29 August 1894 Dear parents! After a long wait I received a letter from you last week and with gladness see by it that you are living and have your health. Well, I can return the same information. I am living as usual and have my health, but one day and week go along exactly as the others. We are having a terribly dry and warm summer. There has been almost no rain in the last 2 months and when we earlier had an almost southland's warmth, then you can almost imagine how it is - everything is drying up. The times are still poor and depressing. Thousands of men are without jobs and many suffer from need, even though people are expecting a change for the better. How soon that will come is not good to say. You ask if I am thinking about coming home soon. Well, I do not know what I should say. If I get a chance for the woods this winter I'd better endure the existence over here yet for a while. I would like to stay and see if the times will change, and so I cannot say anything about whether I will be coming home soon or later. As to news, things are as usual. I do not know of anything which would be of interest to you to write about, so I will have to finish with a friendly greeting to you all. Best wishes. Andrew Lee 725 Water str. Eau Claire Vis Last time I wrote I asked you to inquire - if you should go to Levanger - why Norden Fjells Tidenes was not being sent here even though we had paid for the paper. As I presumed you had forgotten to mention it when you wrote the last time, you must not forget next time.
