Well, I got five more packages of funnies and funny books from you today. Also a nice lil’ ol’ v-mail. Then I got a letter from Harry [Croft] that I about died laughing at. They remind me of the Bumstead family in the funnies. He sure has his troubles but it looks like most of them he brings on himself. I got that swell “Bridge Gang” Valentine too. Tell them all thank you for me and I liked all the sweet little sentiments. I got another nice Valentine from Claude and Mildred too. Say yay — when was Valentine’s Day? Oh well, it doesn’t matter. The main thing is that you all remembered me.
