Connecticut. -Dear Sirs: Mtmy thanks to The Naugatuck Daily Xuws ;uul its staff for the swell memo book which I .have received as a gift, from you. li certainly lllls a wcll-Juk need, us I. often have occasion to jot down bits of information and addresses for •future reference. The .nine of the book and the an-angc-r.ient of its contents certainly bespeaks foresight on some, one's part, for it is ideally suited for a busy .soldier to carry around on his person. Most soldiers are of necessity required to do plenty of moving- these days, and when you realiv.e that each one of them has lo carry everything- on his back you can ur.dei-s.tand how much he appreciates small practical items. So this proves that your kindness and generosity in sending oul these books merits congratulations und gratitude from nil recipients. Altho The "News" is a month old when it reaches me, and the papers usually arrive here in ffatch. i.-s of from thi-ee to eight copies, seldom in the order in which they ::re mailed Unit through no fault of yoiu- own), I thoroughly enjoy each and every copy. At the present time my subscription has expired, but porhnps my very good friend, Howard J. Sagendori 1 , of CO Cm-roll street, will stop by your of- tlce soon and renew it.
