Thanks very much for the package. I received it just before I left for the states and it was very welcome.
Your letter was extremely interesting although the news I regret to say was very dismal. I was sorry to hear about Charlie Nofal and Oscar Frechette as well as the others. Oscar and I played basketball together and Charley was by far one of the most brilliant graduates of Bryant.
I'm now in England where life is rather gay and every day brings forth new adventures. Thanks for your interesting letters and keep me posted.
