Sunday afternoon
June the twenty-first [1942]

Dear Mr. Jacobs,

What a lovely thought is expressed in the letter which my mother has just received! I know my brother will be pleased to hear from the Bryant Service Club.

You might be interested to know that the three Dorans who were graduated from your school are now all employed by Uncle Sam:

War Department, U. S. Engineer Office, Boston, Massachusetts

Clerk to the Naval Observer to the Consulate General, Halifax Nova Scotia

Lieutenant (First) presently in training at the Officers Training School, Army Air Force, Miami Beach, Florida

Opportunities are unlimited today. However, we Dorans know that we never would have been fitted for such opportunities as came our way if it had not been for the training which we received at Bryant.

Regardless of what the future holds for any of us, it is comforting for one to know that he is doing his little part to help our country in the great struggle in which it is presently engaged. How much greater must be the pride which you should take in the effort which Bryant College is making to train its graduates to be of the greatest service to our country.

The best of luck to you,

Sincerely yours,

Margaret Doran [Transcription ends]
