Dear Friends,

Thank you very much for the tobacco that you sent me. It is always a great day when I hear from Bryant. Any message arriving from back home is welcome because it reminds me of a very pleasant time in my life.

My army life so far has been spent in periods of intense activity, usually study, then followed by a couple weeks of rest until new orders arrive. During the time you attend school you are so busy that that is the only thing you think of. During the period of waiting for orders you get so bored from inactivity that you are no better off. Well you know how a soldier always complains.

Remember me to all the students and faculty at Bryant. Remind them that letters are always acceptable and will be answered as soon as possible. I always like to hear what is happening at school.

Thank you again.

Yours truly
Lt. F. D. Hammond
