Dear Brother and all

I’ll, finally, write to you.  Time gets too short, so one never gets as much done as one plans, I do various work at home to earn some extra kroner.  And Mindor has been, out Picking Potatoes now so he has earned a little (the farmers would hire people short term just to harvest his potatoes.  We used to call it our potato vacation as we would get time off school in the fall around potato harvesting time to go to the various farms and help).  As you probably know, I’ve been to Narvik, I had such a Nice time.  It was strange, to see Sister Hanna again, she can’t see very well, is almost Blind, we haven’t seen eachother, since in our Mother’s Funeral, you wouldn’t think we’ve been in the Same Country.  she’s doing well in every way.  Many nice children who, visit her every day almost, all the children have nice homes, and have work and are well, so it’s going well, so now I’ve been there, but it’s almost as if, I felt it was wrong, to ruin so much money, even though it had been given to me, because I could have used it for this Winter, but not to worry that far in advance, we’ll manage somehow then too.  I hope that you’re all doing well.  greet Alma and tell her I’ll write soon, I hope you’ll get well enough to take a trip over here, yes who knows so many strange things happen.

Keep very well all of you.  A thousand dear greetings from Laura and Mindor  Stjørdal
