Dear friends at Bryant,
This will acknowledge and also thank you most sincerely for your thoughtful gift of cigarettes received yesterday. These remembrances serve to keep a warm place in one’s heart for Bryant and the many friends and former associates of mine on the hill.
Kindly note the change of address as I succeeded in finding a residence here in a Norfolk suburb and now have my wife with me.
Remember me to Mr. Gardiner Jacobs and tell him I will write from time to time; also say “hello” to Mr. Ripley, Rita and Florence as they are about all that remain of the “old gang.” (Include George Richards, please).
Again, thank you for your kindness and thoughtfulness.
J. B. Howarth
