We the people of this place wants a better place than this to live. This place is no place for a living creature. We drink impure water and then get sick the children’s get skin disease even the grown ups are sick from cold.

We ate from the mess house and it is near the toilet only a few yard away. We eat the filth that is flying around.

We got no place to take a bath and no place to wash our clothes or dry them when it rains. We women are always lugging water up stairs and take turns warming it up and the stove is small.

We live in a room with our children just enough to be turn around in we used blankets for walls just to live in private.

We need clothes and shoes for our children how are we going to clothe them with just a few dollars. Men’s are working for $20 – month is nothing to them we used it to see our children eat what they don’t get at mess house and then its gone and then we wait for another month to come around.

Why they not take us to a better place to live and work for our selve’s and live in a better house. Men and women are very eager to work.  When winter comes it still would be worse with water all freezed up grub short do we have to see our children suffer.

We all have rights to speak for ourselves.
