To the members of the Bryant College Service Club,

How very pleased I was to get your letter and the box of delicious candy and cookies. Your club is doing a splendid job of keeping up the morale of Bryant grads, and don’t think we don’t appreciate it!

I was sorry to hear of Mr. Ripley’s resignation, but I’m sure Miss Blaney will do an excellent job of pinch-hitting. Good luck to her in her new position.

Things in Washington are very much the same, only slightly more crowded if possible. The cherry blossoms were just beautiful for Easter, and around the tidal basin bore a great resemblance to Coney Island on a hot summer day. Wish you could all have been there to see them.

Once again I’d like to express my appreciation for the Easter package. Being remembered does give one such a good feeling!

Very sincerely,

Shirley E. Poyas
