Bryant Service Club:
I’m very sorry to have neglected writing in so long but things up this way have been rather busy. Things at the office are [sic] here are moving fast.
I received your gift while on maneuvers hence the length of time before replying.
Thanks an awful lot, I appreciate it very much and at that time it was very handy.
Up here, everybody seems surprised to see me get those gifts so I guess old Bryant is one of the very few doing so much for us.

P.S. Awfully sorry about the writing but here in the field without lights it’s pretty difficult.
