Dear Sir:

Just a note to thank you for the swell package that I received from you today. You people at Bryant seem to know just what we fellows in the service need. There is nothing like a good package from friends at home to build up that morale that lowers helplessly, at times.

My address, much to my sorrow, has not changed in many months, and I am eager to get on the move again.

My contacts with other Bryant Alumni have slipped off, and at present writing, my only contacts are with Corporal George Tyler, someplace in southern California; Private Frank MacKendall, someplace in New Guinea; and Candidate Paul Filipowich at Barkley, Texas. I would appreciate it, if anyone at Bryant could furnish me with the address of Curtis Dickenman. The last time I heard from him, was in January at which time I saw him in Boston.

I know that all Bryant Alumni who received such gifts as you have sent me in the past two years, appreciate them as much as I do, and I look forward with anxiety to more of the same.

Thanking you again, I am

Sincerely yours,
Fred A. Bither
