February 25, 1935

From: George F. Gleasure, Company 119 CCC, Bellows Falls, Vermont
To: Frank Gleasure, 2 Grant Avenue, Allston, Mass.

Dear Pa;

I am writing to let you know that I reached camp all right, the train we went up in had two engines on it and we reached the Bellows Falls Railroad station at eleven thirty.  On the way up a bunch of the wise ones pulled the air brakes when the conductor was not in the car and it stopped the train out in the woods.  Well thats all the news there is for now.  I think I forgot to lock up my trunk so if its open see that Jimmy don't bother it because there is a couple of knives in it.  Don't forget to write.
