Date: 
Wednesday, April 15, 1942 to Thursday, April 30, 1942
Notes: 

The date is speculative. The text indicates "it was April" (102), "three months" (109) before "late July, a Friday," when the Griers learn of the death of Major de Spain's son. If this was three months exactly--which is a guess--that would put the arrival of the telegram announcing Pete's death as occurring on Friday April 24, 1942.
SR: We need to use a date range in a case like this, but I'll give you "late April," i.e. 15-30, because of the fact that "late July" is three months later...

Summary: 

(Boy) Grier and his father, Res Grier, are working the field on the family farm when the letter arrives informing the family of Pete Grier's death in World War II.
