We are promised to get white bread next month.  We have been eating dark bad bread in 5 years now, we commence to get little more of deferent other things too, in the way of food.  We wish for some Tea, Pepper, and appricots dry fruit, thats something thats to be importet from the south.  We been having a fine aftersommer here but now it soon over so we will have the long cold dark winter  it is so bad for fuel too, not any caol or cox to get yet, and the wood is such awful priced but of course its “lysere tider” og da går det nok bra (it’s brighter times so it will be ok. He also writes the rest of the letter in Norwegian):  Dear, kind you (Norw. way of saying things) Greet John and Mother a lot from us all.  And many, many thanks for being so kind, and “may God reward you for everything”  Will close again for this time.  I’ll write immediately when I receive something again.  My warmest (heartiest) greetings from us all

Yours Olav
