Dear Bryant Service Club—
Thanks very much for your Christmas gift and greetings. I did enjoy the candy lots.
Although my address has changed recently, the package reached me through “channels.” I am using a temporary address at present, because I have been in the hospital for some time. Have recovered from my illness and expect to return to duty soon. When I am assigned, I will be able to send you a correct address.
I do appreciate your remembering me—and hope that everyone has a Merry Christmas with the best for ’45.
