Life in Alaska – Two short notes From Ced – November 8, 1946

"Greatest Generation" Life Lessons

Since Ced was making payments to Grandpa – I’m not sure what the payments were for – I believe he included a check with this note.

Dear Dad,

In great haste.

Letter later.

Ced

This is probably the later letter,

Friday afternoon

Dear Papa,

Seems as tho’ I must owe you money in order to send you a letter – nothing to prove otherwise yet, is there? I apologize again and admit you are right as to how it happened. At least I had money in the bank this time.

My plans as proposed in the last letter are somewhat upset. The income tax is 20% up to $2500, 22% up to $4500 and 26% up to $6500. this additional 4% is not as bad as I had supposed, but it looks as though I’m going to have a pretty heavy whack taken out anyway. Hope the “pay-as-you-go” plan…

  1. Janet, I appreciate you sharing my family’s stories with your readers. The events happened in a different time and a different world. I believe today’s younger generation should know about the kind of people they are descended from – definitely The GREATEST Generation.
