APG - Holiday Greetings - 1940 - Carl - Note

Dear Lad:

Reopened my card to you which I had not mailed yet to let you know that your’s has arrived (Dec. 20)

Was surprised to hear from you and are still waiting for a letter.

I suppose Christmas will not seem much like what it is supposed to be down there.

Thank you for your kind wishes. We would like to stop at Caracas instead of going to Haiti in February but because of the limited finances I guess it won’t be possible. Could you take a trip to Haiti. We could meet you there.

Let me hear from you. I am struggling with this pen – cut my finger.

Best Wishes

Carl

We were delighted with your nice note and kind wishes. It is rather sad to watch poor old Mac wandering around and wondering what has become of you all. Not many of the “Old Gang” left in town anymore.

Best regards and wishes for your health and happiness.

Dear Laddie,

Thank you so much for Xmas wishes. I had to wait until I saw Marie to get your address. Glad you are well. Hope you have lots of luck in the New Year, also that Santa was pretty good to you.
