Dear Bryant,

It has been a long time since I’ve heard from Bryant, but that was because mail had a hard job catching up to me. I’ve been traveling around so fast. However, I finally did come to a stop and at a very nice spot too.

Before I go further, I may as well tell you that I am somewhere in that strange land – India. Here everything seems to be the reverse of everything in the States – no rationing, plenty of everything, low prices (if you argue long enough!) AND the woman does all the work while the husband watches!! Most of the barracks have “[?]” boys (Indian servant boys) who do everything for them for the huge ([?]!!) sum of approximately 50 cents a week!!!

I consider myself lucky as I’m still doing work I trained for at Bryant. I’m in the main Finance Office on this post and still assigned to the Finance Department.

It would really be nice to get back to see the old school again, but, I guess, I’ll have to wait awhile.

Until then- as ever,
Bob Bernstein
