Thank you so much Heinz! I am so impressed that you were able to translate this letter from my great-grandmother, especially because the script seemed completely indecipherable to me! Everything you have translated makes complete sense: she is writing to her son Ernst Hehn and referring to her son-in-law Oscar Cilz who had also immigrated to North Dakota.

I only have two questions: 

1) My great-grandmother's name was Josefina Hehn (nea Lang), but she signs this letter "your Mother Adelöb Wohl." Is Adelöb Wohl a name or could it mean something else as well?
2) Does she actually say "here a blood sign?" 

  Hi Nadia,

  1.) thanks to Günter Böhm for figuring it out
  2.) I regret making that statement, actually I cannot read those  six letters, sorry
