Flea Market Love Letters
July 20, 1943.
I’m sorry to answer this late but they’ve been working the hell out of us. Well now to talk about the G.F. Elmber is a damn good boss, the best we’ve had yet. The new ship is not very hard to make except for a ammunitions case in it. “Ruke” leaves for the ARmy tomorrow (July 21, 1943). About raising the rates they raised it 4 tips but they didn’t raise our wages a cent.
Creamy is going to school now and he was just transferred. Thanks for the picture. Send some a little bigger so I can see what you look like?
I think all your boys are gone now I don’t see any of them anymore. Well Ranny I have to go to work now (3 to 11) so be good.
Your Pal, Freddie
P.S. The G.F. gang says hello
