Dear friends,

I wish to acknowledge receipt of the cigarettes and, once again, thank you all for them.

I am now on maneuvers in Louisiana not a very pleasant place to spend a summer. The weather is very warm and the bugs terrific. If possible, I would even trade places with you now at exam time.

Best regards to all at Bryant and wishing you all the very best with your exams.

Your friend,
John M. Bannan [Transcription ends]
