Gode Broder

Tak for Pakker og brev  Jeg ligger syk, har ligget i 2 uker  har Bronkit fortættning  har så vanskelig for og puste (åndenød)  Forfærdelig hoste, hodepine og feber.

Første pakken med kjolen  Ja kjolen var altfor liten  Kona er stor nu men mange vil gjerne ha den  Strømpene var fine og den andre sjorten? var altfor stor  vestene for små, men for ha en råd.  Suit pakken (dresspakken) har jeg ikke orket åbnet enda  håper den er bra.  Huf hvor syk jeg er  Du må ha hjertelig tak for alt  Jeg skal skriv strax jeg blir bedre.  Du skal få Blåbær strax jeg kommer op.  Du må ikke ha? fra dig den store? Suiten? (disse to ordene var nesten umulig å lese)  Halvor adrs fik jeg men enda ikke skrevet,  Hjertelig kjære Broder  gud velsigne dig.  Hils alle alle?

Din Olav

Good Brother

Thank you for the packages and letter  I’m sick in bed, have been in bed for 2 weeks  have Bronchitis congestion  have such difficulty breathing (respiratory trouble)  Terrible cough, headache and fever.

The first package with the dress  Well the dress was way too small  The wife is big now but there are many who would like to have it  The stockings (socks?  Same word is sometimes used for both in Norwegian) were nice and the other shirt? (difficult to read) was way too big  the vests too small, but will manage somehow.  The Suit package I haven’t had the energy to open yet  hope it’s ok.  Oh dear me how sick I am  Thank you so much for everything.  I’ll write as soon as I get better.  You’ll get Blueberries as soon as I can get up.  You mustn’t give away? (next to impossible to read) the big? Suit?  I got Halvor’s addrs. but haven’t written yet,  Thank you dear Brother  god bless you.  Greet everyone

Your Olav
