Providence, R. I.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the Christmas gift I received and also for your thoughtfulness in the past. I have enjoyed hearing from you and especially greatful [sic] for being able to read the Bryant Alumni Bulletin.
I have been in the Coast Guard about eight months and for the past six months I have been working in the pay office at Ellis Island, New York. My work is interesting and has proved to be an additional education in the accounting field.
Thanking you again I’ll close hoping to hear from you again in the near future.
