Dear Sir,

I wish to thank the Bryant Service Club for the cigarettes which I received last week. It is great to know that Bryant is pulling for the boys in the service. It is even a greater kick to be able to tell everyone who sent them. I have not run across any other soldiers who are receiving this service from their schools + the Bryant Service Club deserves the highest of praises. I was more than glad to receive the letter telling me of the latest news at Bryant. Perhaps you already have these addresses but here are two of the boys in my class.
