Dear Chairman:

I wish to acknowledge receipt of the package sent by the Bryant Service Club. You make one feel as if he really is doing something.

I think this is a great thing your club is doing and hope the other boys appreciate it as much as I do. It is great to receive a gift from the students of a school you love. I hope to come home after this is over and thank each one personally. I won’t be here long so I’ll give you my new address as soon as I know it myself.

Yours truly,

Charles Hacking [Transcription ends]
