Full transcription of text follows:

"The Lay of the K.P." I know how to peel the festive spud, and how to string the bean, to wash the dishes, clean the pans, and on the mop-stick I lean. So, if I never get to France, and never lose my life, I'll know enough of houseowrk, to make a darn good wife.

From the service of Eleanor McGee, American Red Cross nurse at Base Hospital # 23 "The Nouvel" located in Vittel, Vosges, France from 1918-1919 (?).
