Dear Sirs:

We can quite understand your concern regarding the non-acknowledgement of the package sent to John, our son. However, about the date you mentioned, Dec. 4, 1942 he had been transferred to another outfit with overseas service the objective. We are sure that had he received the package he surely would have had the courtesy to acknowledge it. We last heard from him Jan. 8. First in which he told us not to worry if we did not hear from him in quite some time. No doubt the package will follow him to his destination.

We cannot express in so many words our appreciation of Bryant’s fine work in remembering its boys in these trying times. It will surely make the tie more binding between the boys and the College when that happy day of Peace, for which we are all praying, finally arrives. Thanking you in behalf of John’s mother and myself.

I am
Very truly yours
John W. Gorman
