April 9, 1943
It is a pleasure for me to acknowledge receipt of the package I recently received from Bryant Service Club. I sincerely want to thank you all and, also, congradulate [sic] you on the fine work you are all doing for your men in the Service.
Please say “hello” to the members of the faculty for me, and tell them if I had time I would write to each of them. I thought I was kept busy at Bryant, but, believe me, you don’t know what work is and long hours are like until you hit the army. However, we don’t mind, because it is all for a good cause.
I hope that someday, before long, I will get a chance to visit Bryant. It would certainly feel good.
I wish you all the very best in this school year.
John M. Bannan
