Ensign Wilmer Cressman

c/o Joint Communication School

Camp Bedford, Virginia.

Dear Little Ray of Sunshine:

Thanks so much for your letter. I am sorry that mine reached you late but I am glad you enjoyed it.

After I finish transcribing these few feeble efforts in your behalf, I am going to write another letter which should be out shortly.

John Kaufman wrote and told me that you had stopped in to see him and that was the reason I put the "open house inviation" in my last letter. Ned Keiter was in the office, Saturday, on his way to Florida. He seems to be enjoying his work although he has been bothered with a cold for five weeks following a bout with the measles.

I have often thought of a lot of nicknames for you but the words "gators" never occurred to me. So you are the boys who get them there and get them back. I hope that you will remember all that you see and do, so that even though you can't keep a diary or write the article, when it is all over, you will be able to give us the real story.

Under separate cover, I am sending you a refill and I am including some extra envelopes. I don't want you to run out of envelopes before you do paper.


-2-

Anyhow, listen Wilmer, keep your mind on the job and not on Indiana. I don't blame you really, but there will be time for Indiana after this whole mess is over.

Drop me a line again and keep 'em sailing

Cordially,

John H. Wagner

Alumni Secretary
