V81540 BLAIKIE. R.N.
I received your welcome parcel the other day and want to thank-you very much for it. I appreciated it very much, it sure was swell to get a box of Canadian chocolates. I want to thank you again for it and knowing that you have no doubt sent them to many other fellows of the services who will be in a greater need for them than I was.
Please excuse the short note but I haven’t much time as I am getting ready for draft as I have finished my course I was taking.
So thanking you once more for your kind offer which was appreciated very much.
