Salt to the Sea: 130. Alfred Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
Alfred writes another letter to Hannelore. He tells her the ship finally departed, at ten times carrying capacity. He tells her he is of steely constitution, before ending the letter and vomiting on his own shoes.  
Once again, Alfred’s imaginary letter to Hannelore contrasts sharply with the reality of his life and military service.
