Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Re: French wording

This is what I make of it, but I find French handwriting difficult to read, so am happy to be corrected if I've misread it.

A big assumption indeed!
If you go forward 3 pages from the 1870 census page for the Bram family you come to a summary page for their building which is no. 10 Slotsgade in the Kladebo quarter of Copenhagen.
The Bram family's address in the building is  1 sal til venstre. 
So, it's no. 10 Slotsgade, 1st floor, on the left.

Udenbyes Kladebo is a district of Copenhagen outside the centre.
The street is Slotsgade.
Forhus (front building) 1 sal (1st floor) on the right

I'm not sure how the numbering system works, and qvister has me puzzled as there aren't many Danish words beginning with Q. Possibly a mistranscription of til venstre = on the left?

Perhaps "hope Norman goes well" (is keeping well)

Your reading of the rest all looks to be correct.  Presumably Ma has been unwell.

When I had a similar problem a while ago, it eventually turned out that it was because I had blocked all pop-ups, and the bank site needed them to work.

East Aberdeenshire Advertiser 30 March 1897

'Peterhead - Sad death of a Seaman.
News was received in Peterhead last week by his parents of the drowning at Middlesbrough of William Cordiner, a sailor and the son of Mr James Cordiner (Bottles), Port Henry Road, Peterhead. It appears that Cordiner's vessel arrived in Middlesbrough on Monday and on the following evening, Cordiner who had been walking on the Wharf, slipped and fell into the water and was drowned. Deceased who was a promising young man had arrived at Middlesbrough after a three months voyage to America. He was only 24 years of age and this was his first lengthy absence from home. He was unmarried. Great sympathy is felt for his parents in Peterhead.'

The Aberdeen Press and Journal 31 March 1897 has the same account with this addition:

The sad event was not long in getting abroad among the fishing community, and when Cordiner's father sailed in the trader Sweet Home yesterday evening in order to bring home the remains of his son, a large company of sympathisers witnessed his departure.

Difficult to read as it pixelates.  The father's first name seems to come after his surname, but I can't make it out. I think the mother is Barbe Patte.

Family search has a marriage between Paul Vanderbecq and Barbe Patte, also their daughter Desiree who died aged 3 in 1833.

 In Danish til = to/at, and there is a place called Ågård/Aagaard north of Kolding, DK, so I take him to be Peder Nielsen Gyldenstjerne at Aagaard.

Added: I see KGarrad's wiki link shows the Gyledenstjerne family is connected to Aagaard.
