Saturday Evening
March 27, 1943

Dear Members of the B. S. C.

As I am the duty yeoman here at the office, this will have to be a very short “thank you” note for your very interesting letter.

Although I have heard nothing for quite some time from my classmates and fraternity brothers, my mind very frequently wanders back to the good times that I used to have while there.

An incoming draft of men makes it necessary that I return to work again. I’ll try to write more in a couple of days.

Yours for a short war.
