Edmonton day 12, year 1914
My Dear Uncle and Aunts,
Glory be to God forever. Thank you for the letter that I received about a month ago; I am asking you to not be angry that I am replying so late, for the post office here was closed and the letters were not sent out, and I do not know if this one will leave but I am still writing it and asking you to not be angry because I am a little late, since you have not written anything about the war. And here the war has caused a lot of misfortune, since people were taken to the war while the women and girls stayed in the city. The city is stalled, since there are no people; and I myself am not working for the second month already. I wanted to go to the Old Country this coming autumn but now I will not go, since I cannot because of the war. Since Stefan has not gone to the war he has to marry and not wait for me. I am not writing home, I will write in about three days, and then you will write me back. And when my mom gets the letter, there will be something


new and cheerful. And I want to leave from here and I am giving you another address so that you would reply to this letter. I have nothing else to write about, and I am sending my heartful greetings to all of you, stay healthy. and cheer them up, they should not worry – I have not forgotten about them but it is very hard for me, since I am living in a alien country and I have to endure
Stay healthy
