From your letter of January 22 to Mrs. Monroe I was very much disturbed to learn that you had not heard from me about the Christmas candy, which you kindly mailed. Shortly after receiving the package my acknowledgement was on its way and failure of delivery undoubtedly was the result of the usually heavy Christmas mail at that time.
However I’d like to register my sincere thanks with all of you again for the chocolate-coated cherries. It was grand of you to send me the sweets and was very much appreciated.
Your recent communication was delayed a bit in delivery because it was directed to my former Attleboro, Mass. Address. Will you please change this to 22 Rosewood Street, Pawtucket, R. I.? My address here is correct as you have it listed.
Again many thanks.
Very truly yours,
Richard W. Monroe, ‘36
P.S. I shall endeavor to keep you informed of any further changes in my address. [Transcription ends]
