Dear Mr. Hoffman:
Just a few lines to let you know I got your fruit cake OK. It must have been around some, for quite a lot of water has gone under the bridge since I last saw or wrote to you.
As you can see by the front of the envelope I am pretty far from home now and the cake had to travel some. Can’t tell you what we are doing here only we are training.
The food is good and I have been swimming quite a few times and have visited Honolulu on several occasions. Well I guess I will close as I only wanted you to know my new address. The Red Triangle came too, and is very handy. I let all the fellows read it.
