Dear Students of Bryant:

Received your X-mas present. It was a swell gift. Am corresponding with two other former Bryant students- George Long and Leonard Levin. Of course the mail is slow, and we’re lucky if we hear from each other even once a month. But when we do write, we have plenty to say.

It’s almost Christmas, now. Sure hope we’ll all be home for next Christmas.

How’s everything at Bryant? Want to take this opportunity to wish you all a happy and prosperous New Year. So long and cheerio.
