To the Members of the Bryant Service Club:

It gives me a great deal of pleasure and satisfaction to thank you one and all for the very kind and thoughtful Christmas package. Due to the change in address the package did arrive a little late for Christmas but in excellent condition. Your gift was welcomed because we boys in the service sure like to receive packages and news from the people back home.

I enjoyed the last issue of the Bryant Alumni News because it was interesting to see how many of the Bryant graduates were in service and also to see how spread out they are all over the world. Although I am not personally acquainted with the members of your club I feel that I am one of you and hope that some day I shall be able to visit you all.

Thank you all again for your Christmas box. Good luck to all of you and best wishes to you all for the coming year.
