Dear Friends;

This morning the usual routine of jungle life was broken when I received a package sent by the Bryant Service Club. Although slightly battered the contents were highly serviceable and gratefully received.

It is really surprising how the little things seem so important when you have been away from home for a long period. It seems like only yesterday that I was attending classes at Bryant; however, when I start counting on my fingers I find that it was almost three years ago which, in my young life, is a goodly period.

Although I probably know very few of you now, and the status of the faculty since my departure is in doubt, nevertheless, I am sincerely grateful to you all for remembering me. It helps to know that you are not forgotten.

Albert H. Stanwood
