Two pages. Quarto. Written on two sheets of United Wire and Supply Corp. of Providence, Rhode Island letterhead. Dated 12 June 1934. Addressed to "Nonnie," apparently the writers fiancée. Folded as mailed, some modest age-toning and spots, else near fine. An upbeat letter almost entirely about the surprisingly good conditions in the factory where he worked building ice boxes and coolers. Most of what he worked on were ice boxes for Montgomery Ward, but he also spent a considerable amount of his working time building large industrial coolers for dairies, movie theaters, and restaurants. He mentions his bosses: "They are by far the nicest people I have ever worked for. The plant is small and well kept, nice washroom, soap, towels, hot water, clean toilets, ice water bubbles, and the men in charge are nice considerate fellows." His salary: "I get 55¢ an hour and will get 60 after these 6 weeks and 5¢ after another six weeks.". N° de ref. de la librería 365192
