Please don’t think that I am ungrateful because I didn’t acknowledge receipt of the cigarettes sooner. I was transferred from Camp Lee to Bolling Field. The cigarettes were sent to Camp Lee and had to be sent up here. I just received them today.
Thank you very much for your thoughtfulness. It really is swell to know that the boys in the service are remembered by members of their old Alma Mater.
