Feature Letter of December 7th, 2016
Cousins, Frank C.
During the last few days we were travelling under the protection of several destroyers and it is remarkable the manner in which they manoeuvre. Not the least sign of a submarine was to be seen. Liverpool seems to be certainly a remarkable place and it is certainly nice to see land again after being eleven days out. This morning we were each issued with about seven slices of bread, a small amount of jam, a tin of corn beef and two apples; our rations for twenty-four hours. We then expected to disembark today but I understand we will have two meals tomorrow on board.
