Dear Friends,

Please accept my thanks for the cigarettes you so thoughtly [sic] sent.

I received the “makes” yesterday, although the package was mailed several weeks ago. We move about quite a bit and considerable time elapses before mail catches up with us. In my case the cigarettes were sent to Baton Rouge, La., and I had moved to Langley before they arrived.

I and every other Bryant Service Man, appreciate the splendid work your organization is doing. Thanks again and best wishes.
