Oslo 29 June 23
Finally, I am sending you a letter that I wrote to you five years ago. A letter and a pair of stockings. The letter and the stockings arrived in Nome two days too late, I believe. They came back here and your brother was gracious enough to return them and the letter to me.
Now, unfortunately, I have no stockings to send, but as the hands are empty so is the heart full; full of thanks to God who brought you back to us and thanks to you for all you have endured, for every minute of your outstanding hardships.
Your fervent devotee
From the 1st of July, my address is Provstinde [Presbytera, the wife of a priest] Thora Hansen Sofienberg, Hundorp, Gudbrandsdalen. Otherwise, I live at – Sorgenfrig. 37 Oslo.
If Mr Amundsen wanted to send me a card – I would be delighted!
