Best Wishes For A you for your patronage through another year. And for the good humor with which you have accepted the unavoidable shortages. Often you’ve accepted much less than your usual order, cheerfully. You’ve done without that extra pound of butter, that extra bottle of cream. You realize that this is your war too. One of the many ways in which you’re doing your part is by accepting little inconveniences good naturedly. We thank you for your cooperation.
