I’m sorry that the gift you so thoughtfully sent me was not acknowledged sooner, but, what with one thing and another on what I call my mind, this letter has been postponed until now--the common “quiet before the storm.”
Only two things of interest since I wrote last: First, I am no longer attached to the Port Director’s Office. Temporarily, I am at the Section Base. Secondly, I was fortunate enough to be eligible to take the examination for advancement in rating, and through some strange manner, was lucky enough to pass it. Effective the first of February, I was able to call myself “Y2c.”
Thanks again for the swell gift--those cigarettes were very much enjoyed.
Regards to all.
From the “BULLETIN,” I notice that more and more of the boys are doing their bit, but so far have not met any about. I sure hope to meet one soon so that we can talk about the “good ole days at Bryant.”
Harry I. Golub, Y2c [Transcription ends]
