17. Shuffle bread

 

Another term for it is hardtack. Basically, unleavened bread. It keeps longer; perfect for troops in the field, if by "perfect" you mean "bullet-hard bread you can't chew without a swallow of water." Just a guess, but I think the term "shuffle bread" comes from the fact that it is hard and thin, so you could shuffle it like a deck of cards.

Very cool letter to have, frame it and protect it.
