Camp Chuck

January 16, 1942 // Carlock, Bessie A.

In this seven-page essay, Bessie Carlock described her trip through the Black Canyon region near Phoenix, Arizona, to visit Jenny Hayes' rural home for dinner. Hayes' family, as well as local miners, attended the meal. Carlock described the delicious menu of beef, coleslaw, biscuits, beans, homemade butter, cornbread, and mashed potatoes, with fruit and coffee for dessert. Carlock highlighted Hayes' knowledge of homesteading, cooking, and local animals.
