Dear Bryants:

I received a package the other day from the Bryant Service Club. I opened it and found cigarettes – many thanks !

It was the first time I had heard that you had formed the Bryant Service Club. What a swell idea! You will never know how much it means to be remembered back home. Your gift is the dessert; your letters the appetizers, but your heart-warming efforts to acquire funds and distribute gifts and letters is the meat course, the “piece de resistance”.

You folks might be interested to know that we had as much as four feet of snow in someplaces [sic] here before Thanksgiving. Some melted way, but we have had two snow storms since, so we never have lost our blanket of snow. It is very beautiful! I have been snow-shoeing and skiing. The latter mostly from a horizontal position. The temperature hovers around zero every morning, so you are warned that winter approaches.

At intervals last winter the temperature was 50 below zero. I hope you feel warmer now.

Keep up the good work. Nothing could please the boys more. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Yours for a quick and lasting Victory,

Harold E. Adams
