Anna Maria's letter to Norway

Meant to accompany her father's 1896 letter to his mother and brother. Anna Maria was 14 years old.

Dear Uncle,

I will also use this opportunity and write some words to you.

First, I can tell you that I and Thea plan to be confirmed this summer.

I will tell you what we have for stock. We have two driving horses and a two year-old foal and four milk cows, one heifer, two oxen, and two calves and many hens and we already have 25 chicks and soon will have more, and we have a sow. We have recently sold two cows.

We are nine siblings but two little ones are dead and have gone home to Jesus.

I must stop for now. I hope these lines will find all of you in the best of health.

Yours sincerely,

Anna Maria O. Ellingboe
