This handwritten letter from Gale Carr to his wife, Florence, discusses various aspects of his job as a dairy production manager at the Shelby County Penal Farm, including his work making up pedigrees for the cattle. He goes on to describe a fight among the prisoners who work for him, a visit from a prominent African American politician to the farm, and a trip he took around the county looking at homes.
