    My brother Albert who had bought one of
    my father's farms northeast of Frankford, Minnesota, sold that place and retired from active farm work
    not long before he was seventy years old. His health was very bad and he was almost an invalid for a
    number of years. He suffered from the results of a bad injury which he received while he was still in his
    teens. I mentioned this in a former chapter. He also had several operations for cancer of the prostate
    gland. When he left the farm he moved into the home in Spring Valley which my parents had built and
    which now belongs to my sisters. We had hoped that the doctors might be able to help him, but on the
    twelfth of December 1951 he passed peacefully away after a long hard illness, at the age of 73. ...Albert was always a kind and
    dear man and will be missed greatly by his many friends and relatives, especially his sisters and his

    My brother, Albert, had a serious accident the fall that [Williams Jennings] Bryan was running for president on the “16 to 1” platform. As the brothers were returning from q political rally the horse ran away and threw the boys out, breaking Albert's leg near the hip, and injured him otherwise so that he never completely recovered. He was in bed for months, at first hovering between life and death. Then the knitting of the bone was not as it should be and was a problem to the doctors for weeks. It was a long and painful siege of sickness but in due time he did get better.

    Philip, the son, was in the Navy in World
    War II and spent some time on the island of Iceland which was a rather novel experience. Just before his
    father's death he had a position with a highway company in Colorado but gave up his job to spend the
    time with his father and help care for him the last few months of his life.
