Bryant Service Club,
I wish I had the opportunity of thanking each and every one of you, personally, for your kindness and consideration in remembering us in the service during the Xmas Holidays. Knowing that you must be quite busy besides doing voluntary work in the issuance of these gifts only swells my pride at being an alumnus of a school which has such a “swell gang” in its student body.
Thanks again with my best wishes for as happy and merry a Xmas and New Year as is possible under the present worldly chaotic conditions.
