15 January, 1945.
Just a note to thank you for the Christmas package that you sent to me. I really did appreciate it very much.
I’m spending these winter months in the Sunshine City- St. Petersburg, Florida, and after thirteen months with a patrol squadron operating out of Newfoundland and Greenland I assure you I can easily enjoy this warm weather.
I am looking forward to an alumni reunion in the not too distant future.
Thanks again, and best regards to all.
Arnold W. Pearson.
