Digusting Description – January 1910

(The previous post obviously caused controversy)

Letter to the editor.


May I be permitted to enter a protest against “Gretchen’s” paragraph on killing turkeys in your issue of 1st January. Although born and brought up on a farm I never heard of a woman killing turkeys before. Is it not a pity to foster in the minds of the uninitiated the idea that such scenes are the ordinary relaxation of the women folks of a farm house? Any butcher would have saved “Gretchen’s” friend the trouble and your readers a painful — I had almost said disgusting — description.

“Farmer’s Wife.”
