Dear Members of the Bryant Service Club,

Just a few lines to thank you for your very nice Christmas package which arrived this week; the delay now doubt was due to the fact that you used my old address. Even though these Christmas packages may seem small to you back home, I can assure you that they mean much to us oversees, especially up here in New Guinea where there are no shopping facilities. Life up here goes on in pretty much of a routine manner with little or no changes from day to day. As we are now having our summer season the days are very hot but the nights remain very cool thus permitting a good nights’ sleep. On Thanksgiving our first group of WAC’s arrived but are so few in number that their presence is hardly noticeable. Understand that the girls far outnumber the boys at Bryant this year, some fellows have all the luck. In closing let me again thank you all for your kindness.

Sincerely yours,
George M. Scothon [Transcription ends]
