Letter Included

Selma Apl 4, 1945 1944 [written in blue in different handwriting off to the side]
Darling Daught:

An admission that I have gotten to be about the worst letter writer anywhere. I have alibis, yes, but they are not good Excuses.

As the war goes into its beginning of the End freight movements have increased beyond any one's Expectations and has taxed the power and rolling stock of all railroads. If I could accept a few for placing Empties for anxious shippers I could grow rich. The Equipment is not all that is carrying its peak, but the men who work on railroads are also giving all they have in efforts-So I go home in the morning limp & Exhausted, fit only for the bed and in no mood to write letters.

Two years of this 7 nights a week has taken its toll of an old man and I am giving it up May first to accept day work in Savannah where I go to take charge of the Transfer and warehouse of the Mordeaai [?] Transfer Co. owned by Charles Mordeaai [?] (Babys husband]. He has been importuning me by letter telephone & telegraph for 2 months to come to Savannah. The work is to be from 9am to 5 pm Saturday and Sundays off and will get me as much as I Earn here & good as long as I live. All living Expense is provided us as well as a Salary. Will see all of you enroute to Savannah.

Emily did you receive money ________ I sent you for Callies dress?
Love to all of you Papa

[I think this letter was written to Emily Edwards by her father Charles Frederick Mann]
