I should like to express my thanks to you people for remembering me this Xmas. Your gift made our operations office a popular place while it lasted.
Although I had entertained high hopes of returning home this year complications, as usual, arose at the last minute.
The Providence paper arrives more or less regularly & I have been able to keep track of some of my old friends at Bryant.
Once again I should like to thank you both for myself & the rest of the men in the service.
I'm sorry that I can't say it in person, but here 'tis--Merry Xmas & Happy New Year.
