He acknowldeges her letter, in which she enclosed a clipping from a company paper that erroneously described Anderson as a Master Sergeant rather than a Staff Sergeant. He jokingly describes how fellow soldiers have received similar clippings that exaggerate their wartime awards and deeds. He also acknowledges receipt of a box of clothes from their mother. He mentions that he has been living with a French family, and states that he will soon move to a hotel with heat and hot water. He asks his sister to help him acquire Christmas gifts for family members, and promises to reimburse her.
