11 Can. Field Amb.
Dear Mrs. Addison,-
Just a note to let you know that I received the Christmas parcel you so kindly sent. I received it in plenty of time and in very good shape.
I want you to know that I appreciate it very much and to thank you for your time and bother.
At present I am stationed somewhere in Holland. It is unfortunate that such a pretty country has had to face the destruction of war but next year I hope the Dutch people will be able to celebrate Christmas with us as free people again.
I want to thank you again for your kindness. This letter will probably arrive late but I will wish you a very merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year.
