Dear Mrs. Allen:
Thank you ever so much for your letter of the 13th of March letting
us know of the imminent arrival of a Package for the orphanage.
The package subsequently arrived on the 25th of April and was
duly noted in our files.
Unfortunately I am just now getting caught up with my backlog
of correspondence due to a large amount of aid received from many
parts of the United States. During the past six weeks the orphanage
committee of this company has sent out over 1,000 letters telling
about the orphanage and receipting for packages. During the month
of April we received over 150 parcels and over 250 dollars (the
money due to a newspaper article in Minneapolis, Minnesota).
The committee wishes to extend their heartfelt gratitude to you
and to so many others like you back home that make our project
FOR THE ORPHANAGE COMMITTEE
