I just received a letter from my mother saying that you had written her concerning the candy you sent me for Christmas. I’m very sorry you did not hear from me.
I received the candy at Mitchel Field, N. Y. after it had gone to Florida and back. I received it just before Christmas when I [was] just about to leave for home. I’m sure I wrote when I got back but there is a possibility I forgot because I’ve been jumping around quite a lot. I’ve been to Westover Field since and am now at Hillsgrove.
I would like you to know that I appreciate your sending the candy and hope you will forgive my forgetfulness if I did forget.
