Title Andrew
Description you, and it is about nineteen years since I was in Denmark. I was at that time a boy, and am now thirty-eight years old. I and the family are in good health. I have never been sick since I set out from Svinne. I married a girl from Sweden when I was twenty-three years old. We have two daughters and three sons living and two sons and two daughters who are dead. The eldest daughter is thirteen years old and the youngest, a son, four months. 5 I am very well satisfied; and I feel that I have been blessed of the Lord in the forsaking of my fatherland and in the seeking of a home among His servants and children in the land of America;...a goodly land in which to dwell as well for the poor as for the rich, inasmuch as there is much land here not yet brought under cultivation. When I first came to Utah, I worked as a carpenter and as a timberman for about three years; after which I went to a new place called Mount Pleasant, where I got me a piece of land measured up, built a home and developed a farm, from which I am now enjoying the fruits. At the present time I own two mules (they are a kind of strong draught animal of great endurance), two horses, a filly, sixteen cows and thirtly calves and year/ings, and some sheep, swine, etc. Inasmuch as there is a dearth here on labor help, there is a consequent high day wage,...from two to four bushels of wheat per day, or the equivalent thereof; I have therefore provided myself with various kinds of machinery:...a machine for mowing, it is drawn by two mules or horses; a rake with which to rake hay or to glean stubble and which is drawn by one
