About Letter 283
It's Sunday and Bill remains homesick and "on pins and needles" about word on his redeployment stateside. Taking Rosemarie's advice that "work is the only cure for the blues" he has saved up his workweek chores for Sunday. The food situation in the British Zone is critical with news that the rations are being cut by two thirds. Bill notes that "that is starvation and nothing else."
