Dear Miss Blaney

You asked, “How soon do you leave Newport?” I’m afraid that answer will have to be avoided--but I can say that our training does not officially end until a week from today. I have been told concerning my next destination but that is considered a military secret.

I believe anything you would send to this station would be forwarded to me directly as I’m scheduled for school. However, if I was headed for Sea I doubt if I’d get the package.

I just hope everyone is as happy at Bryant as I am here.

Yours truly,

Edward Healey

P.S. Thanks loads for remembering a soul of the likes of me. [Transcription ends]
