Attention Mr. Davis
The other day I listened to your complaint about food. Yesterday one of your boys complained about food. This morning a note, which you had written to the dietitian, signed in red was presented to me. Do you belong to some secret society which uses red for signatures? I do not understand just what significance the red signature has.
This is to notify you that I suspect you of promoting some dissatisfaction among the boys concerning the food and I am warning you to discontinue such a practice if this is the case. It seems to me that I am thoroughly capable of making investigation among my employees without any sort of a written reminder from you to any employee. I have had just about enough of your foolishness and it will not be necessary to discuss this with me.
W.E. Allen Superintendent
