Members of the Bryant Service Club:

Just two days ago I received your very welcome gift of cigaretts [sic], and about five minutes ago I received your letter. It seems that your gifts arrive just in time as I have always received the cigaretts when I have run out of those I have purchased.

When I read your letter I feel the urge more and more to return to the College again, but I do not have the time at the present time and I cannot see the time coming in the very near future. However, the time will come some time.

I noticed that you made mention to Nick Coracci in your letter. As some of you might know, I lived with Nick during my last year at Bryant, but since his induction into the Army, I have lost contact with him. If it would not be asking too much of your Organization, I would appreciate it very much if you would sent [sic] me his address, so that once again I could get in touch with him.

When I saw the courses that you are now offering it makes me wish that I was there so that I may take a few of them. With the work that I am now doing, I could use some of the information that I would gain.

I suppose by this time that Major Henry J. Lee is vacationing in the Army along with Lieutenant Shors and Lieutenant Hammond. I was glad that all three men got a good position, and am sorry that I could not see them before they left.

Thank you all again for the cigaretts and the letter, and hope to hear from you again as soon as time will permit.

Sincerely yours,

Charles J. Memmott, Jr.
