Thea's letter to Norway

Meant to accompany her father's 1896 letter to his mother and brother. Thea was 18 years old. Skøre and Søndvol are, presumably, references to the names of separate and distinct Ellingboe farms. Tosten Sjelhaugen may be Torstein Helgesson (#2916).

Dear Uncle,

Now that Papa writes, I will also take the opportunity to write a few words to the relatives I have never met.

I have a great desire to see and talk with you but since you are so distant from each other we must use our pen to put forth our thoughts.

We would like to get a picture of you and your family so we are sending you ours. We don’t have any that are recent. Mamma sends special greetings to your wife. In addition, greetings to you and your family from us all. Greet Tosten Sjelhaugen and all at Skøre and all at Søndvol from us.

Yours gratefully,
Thea A. Ellingboe
