Dear Mary,

This is a very difficult letter to write since it has been quite some time since I heard from you. I don’t dare to even guess how long it has been.

The Bryant Alumni publication put the spurs to me and as a result, here is my letter.

First of all, I wish to thank you for the lovely box of candies, which I don’t believe I have acknowledged previous to this letter. I don’t know who was responsible for my receiving it but I would like to thank the entire Club.

No doubt, with just about all the boys in some part of the service, you people are kept quite busy.

I bet Bryant has changed quite a bit this last year--with all the new classes added. I hear Mr. Hammond is teaching the only decent subject taught to humans--you might mention that to him. I know he’ll just love me for saying it.

There isn’t much to say about my work here, except that I am trying my best to become a successful secretary--me, of all people.

Graduation should be coming around before long so I’m going to ask you to do me a favor if it would’ve be too much out of the way. If it is possible, I would like to buy a yearbook and a ticket to the Graduation Prom. Therefore, I would appreciate it if you put my name down for both of these. You can have the bill forwarded to me and I’ll take care of it.

I have already asked for a couple of days off in August, so that I can get up to graduation and to the Graduation Prom.

In closing, I want to say again, please excuse me for being so slow in writing. You have my promise, should I hear from you again, you will get an answer from me immediately.

Give my regards to “Poppy” Carocci and the faculty, especially Mr. Hammond and Mrs. Stickney. [Transcription ends]
