Enter Dutch translation of Excerpt here. (copy from Summary)…….
Apparently the beginning of this letter has been lost.  The remaining portion begins with Harmen Jan describing the spring planting and the crop and livestock conditions and prices. In past years the potato crop has been infested with large potato bugs, but Harmen Jan is hopeful that this year will be better.
Jan Hendrik moved on March 28 from Wisconsin to Nebraska, but as yet Harmen Jan has had no letter from him.  He heard from Mr. Onnink (Jan Hendrik’s father in law) that the move went well.  In this letter to his family, Harmen Jan shares this news about Jan Hendrik and the conditions in Nebraska.
Harmen Jan closes the letter by sending greetings from himself and his family — wife Berendiena, stepson Manus Schreurs, and daughter Dela.
