Providence, Rhode Island

Dear Editor:

Well it has been quite some time since I have received a copy of the Bryant College Bulletin. And being so far away from home I have lost contact with my fellow classmates. If I could be sent a copy of the paper I could see just what my former classmates are now doing. I would like very much to know what they are now doing.

I believe it would be possible for you to send me a copy of the paper, and I would appreciate receiving it very much. I am now the Company Clerk for the 772nd Quartermaster Company at Will Rogers Field, Oklahoma. It should be to your advantage to know that my Bryant Training is coming in handy in Uncle Sam’s Army. I have been in the service but a few short months and Bryant Training has helped me to get some promotions.

I should welcome a copy of the Bryant College paper and feel certain you will send it to me. Hoping to receive an answer from you soon, I remain,

Yours sincerely,

Cpl. Gardiner W. Congdon
