Odums vaicoj babeņai, voi jei pazeist Jākubu i Sarmeiti Pūrmaļus. Pūrmali emigrēja iz Ameriku – taipat kai babenis saime. Jim beja meita Māreite. Oduma babeņai beja draudzine Māreite. Juos apsveic vīna ūtru Zīmyssvātkūs, i babeņai ir juos adrese. Odums nūroksta adresi. Jis ir prīceigs i soka, ka brauks iz Latgolu.
Odums asks his grandmother if she knows the Purmalis family, Jēkabs and Sarmīte. The Purmalis family emigrated to America, as did his grandmother’s family. They had a daughter, Mārīte. Odums’ grandmother had a friend named Mārīte. They greet each other at Christmas and Grandma has her address. Odum writes down the address. He is happy and says that he will go to Latgale.
