Your recent gift has been received and is greatly appreciated. I am sure that all the men who are likewise receiving gifts from you will also be appreciative because it does a man good to know that someone is thinking of him while he is away.
It may interest you to know that not having seen a member of my Fraternity for several years, I ran into Corporal George Tyler recently who is also stationed down here. Some of the old Folks up there will remember him as being in my class also. Mr. Mercier might.
I keep a regular correspondence with several of my classmates from Bryant, and most of them are in the Service.
Thanks, again for the gift, and if there is anyway [sic] I can repay you, or anything I can do for you, do not hesitate to ask.
