Dear Mr. Mayer:
Gollies, you sure are keeping us well supplied in Sunday papers!
That really lends a bit of home atmosphere to this drab place,
that is, the reading of the Sunday comics & photo section
of the newspaper on a Sunday morning in Korea. Your parcels of
food and tobacco have also been received. I gave most of the food
staples to the orphanage and distributed the cigarettes amongst
the men in my tent. I have been smoking the pipe tobacco, for
which I wish to extend my personal thanks.
During the past month I have sent out over 500 letters, almost
a fifth of which were personal ones (i.e. not mimeographed). Even
the mimeographed ones had a personal note written thereon. I have
had two newspaper articles published so far in April and responses
from the one in Minneapolis has amounted to 83 dollars and a large
amount of material in the mail. The response has really been wonderful.
For this we are very thankful.
With kindest regards, I remain,
