Dear Mr. Chairman
I wish to thank you very much for the box of candy I received from you. It was very nice for you to be so thoughtful and kind and you may be assured that it was appreciated.
I am being transferred to Aberdeen, Maryland on the 15th of this month. I have been selected to take the Officer Candidate Course at that station. What my proper address at Aberdeen will be, I don not know as yet.
Thank you again for everything.
