I'm writing this short letter to tell you that I have received that Christmas package from the New York Control. It came yesterday & it has every kind of toilet article for me that they could think of, also a carton of cigaretts & candy, writing paper, pencils peanuts & a lot of other stuff that I can't name off hand. I already sent out a card acknoleging the receipt of it & thanking them. They say that there are 11000 men from the N.Y.C. spread all over the world, so that will cost them quite a little money. Well there isn't anything to say from here so I'll close for now. Send me the story on the death of Madeline's baby in your next letter as I didn't know anything about it till you mentioned it.
