I want to thank the Bryant Service Club for the box of cigarettes which I received a short time ago. I regret to say that my acknowledgement is a little late, but I am sure you all realize how busy we soldiers are at this time.
From all reports the Bryant Service Club is doing a fine job in bringing happiness to their boys in the services. By such actions as these the boys know you are behind them and doing your part in our vast defense program.
I want to congratulate the Bryant Service Club and all those who have contributed in some way to start it and keep it rolling. Keep up the good work.
Very truly yours,
J. M. Bannan
P.S. My address will be changed in about two weeks. I will notify you as to my new location. [Transcription ends]
