Transcription:
11/18/1943/Dear Miss Breed, /Still working like the devil. 14 hrs per day. Yesterday we dishwashers got stuck with the job of cleaning 36 chickens. Today we're stuck again with 30 more. What a job. The first time, too. The weather is still good. Crisp in the morning with frost almost every morning. We have small coal stove in tent to keep warm. All the fellows here are working hard. Avg. 12-14 hrs. Some work until 12:30 AM. The carrots are sweet and huge. The cabbage is also huge. Cauliflower is too. As well as potatoes. I never saw such wonderful vegetables. The soil is truly wonderful. /Sincerely/Ted
