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 the health of the herd, a visit from the county commissioner, and the lack of dairy stock skills among the laborers. He also describes the necessity of learning some basic veterinary skills due to the lack of the veterinarian's attention to the herd and his plans for the family livestock once the family moves to Tennessee.
