Eau Claire Wis. Mar 1st Dear Sister's Son: It is not very long ago since we wrote to you but we believe that you must by now have received the letter which we sent. We have now today sent the ticket to you. We did not intend to send it before Elling came down from the woods, but then I talked with the agent and found I could get it whenever I pleased so then i thought it was best to send it to you now so you can get here before the mills start up. And when you have with certainty decided when you are leaving then you must inform us as to your departure date from Trondhjem so that either the agent or we will be at the station when you come to meet you; And if you have changed your mind about leaving then you must either send the ticket back as soon as possible or if there is any other person who is with certainly leaving you can let them take it. And one thing I want to ask you: namely, if you have any money you can spare until you get here if you would be so kind as to buy me a half dozen teaspoons (6). I should really have liked to have a whole dozen (12) but it is not likely that you can spare that much. As to warm wool clothes you must not bring too much for they will be thrown away when you come here anyway. As to the teasppons, if you would please buy them a little large. They can rather be a little expensive because I do not want the smallest ones. And then I must quit with my poor writing for this time, but a friendly greeting to your parents. They are greeted from Elling also and finaly are you most kindly greeted from me. Your aunt. Guruanna Andersen Sende You are greeted from Anna. She got a little daughter one of these days.
