A photo - postcard written by my great grandmother Christine Brita Kristina (maiden name Olson) Erickson for her five year old son Alphons. It was mailed from Wilton, North Dakota on September 10th, 1910 to my grandfather Frank Gustaf Severin Erickson who was living and working at the time at Fort Keogh in Miles City, Montana.

Left to right:
My uncle Alphons (Al) Alkallar Erickson, aunt Abbie Ebba Angnis Kristina (Lincoln) Erickson & Vera Edla Alfrid Elvira (Gallagher) Erickson

Photographed by their brother Helmer Erick Olaf Erickson at his "Erickson Studio" in Wilton, North Dakota

An added hand-written note on the side of the card written by my uncle Helmer to his brother Frank reads:

Did you ever get my two postals I sent you about 3 months ago?
If you did why don't you answer?

Your Brother

The Swedish translation and the transcription will be posted here eventually.
