Her birth town or village is difficult to read, and I have guessed Othfricsen, but this is probably incorrect.
The ship is spelt "San Fransisco".
The German barque San Francisco, was 404 tons left left Hamburg on the 9th of August last, and
was under the command of Captain Nicholas Stortenbecker. There were 264 German immigrants on board. In all there were eleven deaths, all infants. See https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/ 3167516
Wilhemina has printed "Lady" after her name, but it looks more like she is indicating she is a woman, as lettersare addressed to "Mrs".
She signs herself "Minna" obviously a diminutive of her christian name.
She says her son lives in "Dundee", but there is a word after it, which isn't "Queensland", not sure what it is.
Letters attached concerning her husband's nationality - she answers he is dead, was not nationalised, and but was a German national.
