Augsburg, August 2^ 1946.
Mr. Peterson Truckfarm
Dear Mr. Peterson,
I You will be wondering now to receive the letter, which two
prisoners of war have promised you.
Sure, it will not be easy for you to remember us under the many
prisoners of war, who worked on your farm, but I think it is
present to your mind, that we both worked always together,
especially in the cabbage and finally we had to repair the
shaft of the spring in your courtyard.
One of us (Willy) often has driven the tractor, and one (Sepp)
you may recognize by telling you, that I considerable hiirt a
finger, when I cut cabbage. Now we think you are able to know
When we left Moorhead we had the lucky chance to come soon to
rd an European transport. On the 3 of December 1945 we reached
Prance. Unfortianately we had to wait to the 15 of January 1946
until we have been discharged. And we have been very happy to "^
find our family at home by good health.
Now V/illy visited me here in Augsburg and we remember the time
with pleasure we have worked on your farm. It is just a year ago
we came to your farm. In spite of all reductions which have
prisoners of war, we had also beautiful hours, and not at last
you lightened our imprisonment with your kindness. For that we
will say again many thanks with this letter.
How we live now in Germany you may read, in the press.But the main
is, we are still by good health and we can work.
We should be very much obliged to you, if we could receive news
We wish you the best and the same good crop you had the last year.
With many greetings
Sepp JIayer, (13 b) Augsburg, Griggenbachstrasse 2
Bavaria - Germany
