Hoppy horse weekly
In my last epistle I promised to tell more about Haxtun and its surroundings. When we last met it was at Gust Young’s place. Then we had plenty of time to talk as it was snowing the whole day and the wind from north was blowing sharply. The day after was a fine day so I when away to my old friend C.A. Johnson, where I borrowed a horse and a wagon, and away I went first to G. Paulson. Of course he wanted to talk but time was too short. He had lots to bringing in his crops but he took his time and we had some drinks. Emil Sandell had gone away to cure his health but his old lady helped me accomplish my errand. A. M. Anderson was happy as a young man that had received –yes-from his girl-he was so happy because he had sowed 20 bushels bafre?? (Perhaps it should be “havre” that is oats) and from that he harvested 800 bushels; do that if you can. John Björklund is a great farmer too. Wherever you go you see happy faces. Chas. E. Anderson didn’t show a sad face either.
And then back to Haxtun where I met A. M. Axelson. He was busy packing farmers’ products to be sent to a farmers ‘meeting in Canada, and surely Haxtun will receive the first Prize. Now I am old but long ago I was young but I have never seen such a rich harvest on what we call “dry farming”, than the one in Haxtun. Mr. Axelson is the oldest settler in this region. He was the first to settle down and build house in this wild prairie. He sold lands. He was glad to society flourish. He lent me some horses, so I could travel like a gentleman, and so I went away south of the town, where I met the two brothers Sharp, and they gave me a reception better than if the president himself had come. And in the afternoon I made myself ready to leave Haxtun to go to Julesburg.
The first man I met was the master tailor L. J. Lundell with family. He owned an estate 4 miles outside the town, where he had horses, cows and calves. He had so many pigs that I couldn’t count. In town he has a big neatly house so he has earned a deal for days to come. In Julesburg there are not many Swedes, but outside there are plenty of them. I waited for half a day for an opportunity to go with one of them, but probably they had heard that I was there, so they stayed at home. I had to hire for a ride. The first man I met was just silly and he let me know that it was a shame to pay for a newspaper. We live in a free country, and I never pay my debts and I will never pay for a paper. His neighbors told me that it was true. Old debts he never pays, and new debts will rest till they become old. And then we came to Sam Friskoff, a first class gentleman. He offered me to stay till the end. Both he and his wife made my life so happy. And his daughters..
