Dear Madam: --

Your letter of January 19, 1943 was received this morning. I have no way of knowing if Leo has received your package that you sent on December 4, 1942.

Leo was transferred from Camp Pickett, Virginia on December 6th, 1942 and while still in the States until Christmas day—his post office address was changed. His new address is: --

Pvt. Leo S. Harrington #31204679
A. P. O. 8298 (Medical)
c/o Postmaster
San Francisco,
U. S. Army

I feel quite sure that Leo will write you when he receives the package; but I feel it may take some time.

On behalf of my son—I thank you very much for your kindness and I do appreciate what you are doing for the boys in the Service.

(Mrs) Bridget R. Harrington
