BRYANT SERVICE CLUB
I received a letter from my mother a week ago in which she told me that you had sent a package to me, and had not yet received any acknowledgement for the gift.
I’m really sorry that there has been such a delay, but as yet I have not received the gift. Since I last wrote, I have had a change of address and my mail since December 1st has been more or less fragmentary, but eventually I expect it all to catch up with me, and in the meantime all I can do is [?].
Despite the fact that I have not as yet received the package, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your kindness in thinking of me and the other boys in the service it somehow makes you feel good way down inside, and when I do receive the package I shall gladly acknowledge it.
Due to security reasons, I am unable to tell you of where I am or the type of work I am doing, so please excuse the lack of details until after we’ve won the war in the , I hope, not to distant future.
Again, thanks for your kindness, and the best of luck to your worthwhile efforts.
