Dear Friends:

It is most fortunate that we, former students and graduates of Bryant College, have so many thoughtful friends in the present student body. The commendable work you are doing may seem like a very small task, but its effect is certainly invaluable, to say the least.

It’s unfortunate that you are not able to see the joy and happiness that such thoughtfulness brings to these boys who are making many sacrifices to bring this conflict to an end.

The value of the gift does not bring greater or lesser joy to these boys. Oh, no! It’s just knowing that the people at home are not forgetting us and the hardships and perils that servicemen encounter in war. This is what gives us a greater spirit and courage to overcome these things and attain our objective.

Let me assure you that the boys will never forget the very good work you are doing. Please keep up the good work especially now when victory is close at hand.

In closing, please accept my thanks for the beautiful sweater that I was so fortunate to receive from the Bryant College Service Club.

Yours very truly
Patrick J. Fallon
