Inhaltsangabe: Letters [such as these principally written by Johanne Nielsen] have bridged the Atlantic since the earliest days of Danish immigration, and they are documents of great historical interest because they express the thoughts and experiences of the immigrants in their own words. In these letters, as H. Arnold Barton put it, "for the first time in human history, (common people) began to speak directly to posterity."

These letters are unusually rich because Denmark had the first sound system of public education in Europe, so Danish immigrants were well prepared to express themselves. Let these Danish pioneers speak to you as you savor their letters from a century ago. Preface: J. R. Christianson, Luther College, Decorah, Iowa

Auszug. © Nachdruck mit Genehmigung. Alle Rechte vorbehalten.: Algona, Iowa February 8, 1894 Dear Chestian (Christian),

I have waited now so long for a letter from you and I long to hear how you are doing in Chicago. It is hard times all over.

Now I will let you know how we are. Herman has been very ill this winter but now he is a little better again. Has Julia written to you? She was home for Christmas and she got your address. If she has not written, you probably have not heard how ill Sine (Carol) has been. Sine got a school about 40 miles from here at 30 dollars a month and Julia got one at 26 dollars a month. There were only two miles between where they lived. They were both happy because then they could spend time together. Sina started in early October and was to be there for six months, Julia's was for four months. When Sina had taught eight days, she got typhoid fever. Julia left immediately and got her to the doctor. The fever ceased after about one week and she got better. After 3 weeks she was able to sit up and the doctor promised her that she soon could go home and we waited for her every day. Anyway, the house where she stayed was very poor. Some of the windows were broken so she got a cold and then got a fever. Then Julia took Sine's school and let her own go. I had to go up and take care of Sine. I was there for 5 weeks. Then I got a letter that Herman was ill, so I went home and sent Gertrude up to take care of Sine...Now she is finally in Algona. She has been there for two weeks. We hope to get her home late this week. When she came to Algona, she could not walk by herself but now she can walk across the floor by herself. The costs of the doctor and the medicine and all the other things will be more than 75 dollars. But we should not fret over that but instead thank God for letting her live. Johanne Nielsen
