I seem to have slipped up again in not thanking you for the fine Christmas remembrance you sent. During our present training period there is very little time to write. We are kept going continuously six days a week. At present I attend a school in cryptography every afternoon and on two nights a week study radio and telegraphy. Of course in the infantry we have hikes almost daily.
On the third of this month I was rated as a First Class Private and the twenty-fifth received my rating as a Technician fifth grade.
Thank you for remembering me and please excuse me for the delay.
Very truly yours,
Alfred Cole [Transcription ends]
