Gerrit Van Holland Receives Package

Pfc. Gerrit Van Holland writes the Commercial Club and American Legion Auxiliary from the Army Air Field at Alliance, Neb., thanking them for his Christmas package.

I wish to express my thanks to the Commercial Club for the useful Christmas gifts which they have sent me.

I received my Christmas gifts some time ago, but failed to write.  I hope you will forgive me.

I sure appreciate your kindness.  May I thank you again for the useful gifts. 
A soldier—Pfc. Gerrit J. Van Holland

P.S. May you all have a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
