6Dear Bob
8I am so much better & able to stick to my writing that I dont dare to
9move, always leave well alone is my motto. So I dont know when I shall
10get up north to see you all. I got a nice letter from your sister. I
11shall like to see them all so.
13How about the invention. I see the English are according to their
14showings sending German sub-marines to the bottom by some devices. I
15suppose they are not yours! My work is along another line; it’s all
16for peace!!
18Did I tell you my favourite nephew & god son Oliver Schreiner was away
19fighting in the trenches? I saw the telegraph boy come to the door
20with a telegram this evening it made my heart jump into my mouth; I
21thought it was news about him, as my brother has promised to wire if
22he hears anything, But it wasn’t any bad news for me.
24Love to Lene & to you. There seems a fate about my coming north
