Dear Friends:

I received your Christmas package before I left the states but am just now getting the pleasure of thanking you for it.

Seeing as how Santa Clause [sic] has already been good to me I hope you won't think that my asking for more candy is an attempt at a second celebration. But when my name comes up on the list again I would appreciate anything you sent.

You might be interested to know that the first day I hit port I happened to meet Shirley Dyer and I hope to see her again soon if they aren't going to work me too hard.

Things are going to be fine in this duty from all that I can judge in my first few days of it.

Many thanks to all and a Merry Christmas.

Norman A Garrigus
