Dear Brother and Family,
I have the great advantage to have good health for my age. When I am sitting in my solitude, I sometimes feel lonely. I think the time goes slowly, but sometimes it goes quickly. It is now soon 6 years since my beloved wife died.
I am now in Clay Center with my son (Peter Luther). I arrived January 9, and I am leaving from here the first of next month, if God give me health and strength, and if it does not change, because I shall go to the dentist. He has been away, but he is back in a week. I do not know if it will be to fill the old teeth, or to do new. That can change the time I go home.
It does not matter. I have a good time where I am. Here it is better for my feet. Home at Alfred's, I have my feet on a warm brick. Here they have a fire in the cellar from where there is a flue to every room in the whole house. The floors are just right warm for my feet. I have no pain in the night. It takes much coal to have fire to heat such a big house. There are 6 rooms in the upper floor and some of them are big.
By now, I think they have begun to pull down the house for moving in Hamra. I think of the questions in my last letter when I asked for an answer. It was lack of wisdom about the widow in Dunkullen if she got anything of what they had improved there and with the payment to Oskar. I have nothing to do with that. I do not remember if I asked if you had the right to stamp or sell as many trees you wanted, or if you only get to sell perhaps a separate part per year. It would be interesting if you would tell me.
