    <p><font face="georgia,palatino" size="3" color="#003366">Letter from Bertha Foss to her deceased husband, Otto Christian Foss&#39; niece, Amelia Larsen Siferte.</font></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><font face="Georgia" size="3" color="#003366">From: Bertha Foss, Route 1, Pelican Rapids, Minnesota</font></p><p><font face="Georgia" size="3" color="#003366">To: Amelia Larsen Siferte, 511 NE Lawrence Street, Portland, Oregon</font></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><font face="Georgia" size="3" color="#003366">February 10, 1941</font></p><p><font face="Georgia" size="3" color="#003366">My Dear Niece,</font></p><p><font face="Georgia" size="3" color="#003366">Your dear letter addressed to Clara has been received and thank you&nbsp; very much. Well, it is my sad duty to inform you that Clara is not with us any more. She passed away March 10, 1934. She had not been feeling well for some time and the Doctor advised her to have an opperation and she went to a Hospital in Fargo and had the opperation and she seemed to be getting along nicely but it suddenly turned to the worst and she died the next day. She died 3 years after her Father died.</font></p><p><font face="Georgia" size="3" color="#003366">I suppose Clara told you that we had moved into town to live. We built a nice new house there in 1928 but Pa didn&#39;t live to injoy it very long.</font></p><p><font face="Georgia" size="3" color="#003366">Clara and Emma was staying with me then but Emma went out to Montana the next fall to be with her brother [Peter Seilstad]&nbsp;when he died. Then she staid with his familie out there for about a year and then she died too so when Clara passed away I was there all alone and my health is not very good. I&nbsp; have a crippled leg so have to use a crutch to get around in the house so I am quite helpless but I am 86 years old now and can&#39;t expect to get any better. I rented my house in town and moved back to the farm again to live with Oscar and his familie. They have 3 girls, the oldest is 11 years old and two twin girls, 7 years old.</font></p><p><font face="Georgia" size="3" color="#003366">It was so interesting to read your letter and see about the different members of the familie. I knew your Father &amp; Mother [Andrew H. Larsen &amp; Anna Olsen Larsen] real well and I can well remember you and Hannah [Amelia&#39;s sister]. I used to see you down at your grand parents and Margaret and Maxine [Amelia&#39;s sister &amp; neice]&nbsp;was down here to visit&nbsp; me once so I have seen them and I think we have pictures of most all of you.</font></p><p><font face="Georgia" size="3" color="#003366">Am glad to see that you are feeling well and can work with your flowers. Yes, I am sure you have some beautiful flowers out there. I love flowers too and used to raise lots of them when I lived on the farm but now can&#39;t do it any more.</font></p><p><font face="Georgia" size="3" color="#003366">Suppose you remember *Hannah, Otto and Carl Olsen. They are all working. Hanna is working for a familie in Fargo. She has got a very nice place. Otto is staying in Pelican and Carl is working in Detroit Lakes. His is married and has one girl.</font></p><p><font face="Georgia" size="3" color="#003366">See you are having nice weather and no snow out there. Well, not so here. We have plenty of snow and when it drifts into the road they have to do lots of shoveling to get through.</font></p><p><font face="Georgia" size="3" color="#003366">Am afraid it will be hard for you to get anything out of this letter because I am such a poor writer but was so pleased&nbsp; to get your letter so will try and send a few lines any way and thank you for writing to us.</font></p><p><font face="Georgia" size="3" color="#003366">With love to you all, Bertha Foss</font></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><font face="Georgia" size="3" color="#003366">Hannah, Otto &amp; Carl are the children of Amelia&#39;s Uncle Anton Olsen.</font></p>
