Thank you very much for the Christmas letter from Bryant. It came today and I certainly enjoyed reading it. I have not as yet received the package yet, but know it’s on the way, since many other packages are chasing me also.
It’s nice to hear about the old gang and what they’re doing. In my branch of the service I don’t get an opportunity to meet many who would have gone to Bryant and the word from the states is always a good word. Hope we can all spend next Christmas at home in the states. Thanks for the letter.
