Jan. 30, 1943
Received your letter concerning packages sent [to] Gardiner W. Congdon. On July 16, 1942 he was home on furlough + as I was in Oklahoma following that I know he never received any package. Now he is out of the country so the Dec. 4th package may still be in Oklahoma. I hear from him regularly + he has never made any mention of receiving it. If I had known you had sent them I certainly would have written to you sooner.
I hope you are able to trace these + I know Gardiner would be very pleased to know you remembered him. His address now is:
Cpl. G.W. Congdon 31059556
Hq. + Hq. Sq. 316th Ser. Gp.
New York City, N.Y.
