Just a few lines to let you know that I received your Christmas gift in good condition and in plenty of time for Christmas. I want to thank you and all the members of Bryant College for the gift for I appreciated them very much. You know it is nice to receive and unexpected gift, for I had thought the Service Club had lost track of me with all the moving I have been doing lately. I have been moving around California and Nevada for the past few months but I hope I am permanently settled here for a little while at least.
I imagine Bryant is just about the same except for the fact that there are very few men inrolled, now that Uncle Sam is taking just about everybody. the Air Corps claims they are short of administrative men so if some lucky G. I.s were sent to school there, I know they would have a swell time. Few of us will ever forget all the good times we had there, not to mention the education itself.
You know, I would like to get one of those letters you have sent me in the past with some of the boys addresses. So if you have any printed in the future, I hope you will put my name on the mailing list.
Well, I am afraid I will have to sign off now, for I have to get back to work now. However, before I do, again, let me thank you for the cigarettes.
