I completely understand your inability to return my letter immediately. I am extremely fortunate to have found time to write just now since Peder is being watched by Anna and Kirsten. I am in the middle of sewing a nightgown for Britta at the moment, and then I plan to make one for myself and a nightshirt for Anders. Then I will have to embark on making everyone warm underclothes for the winter. I will certainly make good use of the white flannel I purchased at your shop. Well I must say that Britta, unlike Rachel, is the least well-behaved of my children. Sometimes I really don’t know what to do with her! Why, just yesterday she poured coffee all over Peder’s face! I don’t know what would compel her to do such a thing, and I can just be thankful that the coffee was not hot! Anna, on the other hand, is very good with little Peder and loves taking care of him while she does her chores! We actually have a smaller house now, but we have far more land. It is hard to fit in a one-room cabin, but we manage. Good luck with your curtains!
