Bryant Service Club
Providence, Rhode Island
In answer to your recent letter-dated Jan. 22, 1943 addressed to my parents please be advised that I did acknowledge receipt of your most welcomed gift.
Since graduating from Bryant I have received only the one package.
I wrote to Mrs. Stechney – this is probably the reason why the Bryant Service Club weren’t notified.
I certainly appreciated the thoughtful “jesture” [sic] of receiving the wonderful pair of hand-knitted sox- They sure did come in handy this winter.
I would appreciate it, very much, if some of my Bryant Alumni would drop me a line.
