Letter 1918 from David Eichel to ____ Langman
« previous page | next page » |
…when you take into account the com. statement to one of the men – that they might decide to send him to do farming in China or France, in short anywhere they pleased.
Personally it does’nt matter to me whether the offer is made farming is under civilian and [?] military jurisdiction. It had never been my intention to become a farmer and I certainly won’t think of becoming one because I am given that as an alternative to a prison sentence. I insist upon retaining my right of choice or occupation. If I can’t have that right of choice, well, it’s up to them.
