I'm going to save the candied nuts for New Year's./Last night went to listen to the mass choir made up of the choirs of all three camps. Under the full moon the program was truly impressive Enclosed is the program./On Dec 11-13 we had a Xmas Bazaar here in Camp III. The proceeds are to buy Xmas presents for the children of all three camps. People came from the other camps so the crowd was huge. The Bazaar was quite a success with many things sold out within 2 hours after opening./I'll try to write again soon. Am closing so as to make the afternoon mail./Sincerely/Ted
