To Cadet Walter S. Grant, Jr.1

January 6, 1930 Fort Benning, Georgia

Dear Walter:

I appreciated your remembering me with a Xmas card. Thank you for the thought.

I saw a class mate of yours at a dance here. He said he lived near you, and in an old room of mine.

I hope your work goes well and that you are in good spirits. Of course January and February are the blue sour months at school and require a little of the philosophical attitude. Saw wood and exercise—and don’t sit on the radiator and grouse.

Faithfully yours,

G. C. Marshall, Jr.
