Letter July 18, 1918 from David Eichel to ___ Langman
in a red brick barrack which bids well to prove fairly comfortable just as soon as we have grown accustomed to our new surroundings. We have found our food vastly superior to that at camp. We have already been interviewed by the Corp.[?] in charge, a very broad-minded and liberal chap. He seems to understand our position thoroughly, hence very little misunderstanding is likely to arise between us.
What is to result from our sudden transfer here is a matter of pure speculation. The commission is probably to call at Leavenworth and perhaps make a more liberal offer to us.. Objectors from other camps in the East were already here when we arrived. Most of them are prepared to take farm work provided they have the privilege of choosing their employers and arranging their terms.
