19431201a-Lscan-600Dear Mother & Dad,

So far today I have received twelve packages. Two from you and thanks a million. Everything was swell. The milky way bars were fresh as they could be. I will write and tell you some day of all of the people that sent me a Christmas box. I don’t know how I will repay all of them. Mrs. Goldsby’s cake was delicious. It was just a little moldy but what’s mold to a bunch of hungry soldiers. We ate mold and all. Boy but was good. I will write and think her four in it. I only got about one piece but some of the fellows don’t get packages so we all ate it. Everyone just raved over it. I also received one box that was in a Crisco can and had a Campbells wrapping paper around it. Did Mrs. Fleshner send it? There wasn’t any 19431201b-Lscan-600return address in it.  It it made me feel badly because I don’t know whom to thank and they may feel slighted. If it was her tell her I said thanks. The weather here is just the same it was snowing up in the mountains today and it looked so funny to see it snowing up there and not down in the valley where we were.  I believe that it is the first time I have ever seen anything like that. Well mom and dad I have better get to bed. That’s one way to keep warm. Goodbye and I love you both very much.

Your son,
