Letters between brothers

As we searched for information on my husbands family, we came across a website for the Tietzel family in Australia and a few familiar names popped up. So we reached out and were put in touch with what we have come to learn is Jeff's 3rd cousin. The Australian branch had paid a professional genealogist in Germany and shared their findings with us.

As we learned, Jeff's great grandfather, Carl Albert and his brother, Ottto left Germany for Australia. Carl Albert was unable to pay for the land he bought and returned to Germany. Otto remained in Australia.

Carl Albert then moved to Pennsylvania.

Included with the information from Jeff's cousin was this letter from his great grandfather, Carl Albert Tietzel to his brother, Otto.

First image is the letter, re-typed followed by a copy of the original letter.
