Did Hawkeye write these lines in ''Dear Dad,'' or did Father Mulcahy write them in ''Dear Sis''?

Each wrote what they were feeling and each shared hope during some bleak holidays at the 4077th.

The 4077th tried to make Christmas as lively as possible. However, in the midst of the Korean War, getting in the festive spirit wasn't the easiest thing to do. 

On several occasions, the characters from M*A*S*H would write home to their familes back in the States. 

In memorable episodes surrounding the Christmas holiday, Hawkeye writes to his dad while Father Mulcahy writes to his "sis," each detailing what they're going through with their respective roles.

Can you tell who wrote the following lines in their letters? Was it Hawkeye or Father Mulcahy?

#7 is a mistake, Hawkeye as well as his physician father are from the fictitious hamlet of Crabapple cove, Maine! Opps!!

You know I thought it was Maine so I only got 1 wrong. Thanks for the correction. I feel better now

Actually, in the early episodes Hawkeye was from Vermont. (He also had a sister and his mother was still living.) It was around the 4th season they introduced Crabapple Cove, Maine as his family's summer home. Very quickly after that it became his hometown.

I’m positive that Vermont was used in early episodes, just like Henry’s wife had 2 different names. Correct me if I’m wrong!

You got 10 out of 10. Both episodes were just on last night. Hawkeye's from Maine so I guess his father was spending Christmas in Vermont.

7/10. On ques. #7 Hawkeye mentions Vermont as where his dad is at home. As the show went on, Hawkeye's hometown was Crabapple Cove, Maine. No continuity there.

Missed #8. it really sounded like something Hawkeye would have said. But then, what do I know?! Not the answer to question 8 apparently.

Hawkeye was from Crabapple Cove, Maine. But "in the Season 1 episodes 'Dear Dad' and 'Ceasefire', he refers to his father living in Vermont, and in the Season 4 episode 'The Late Captain Pierce' Hawkeye tells Corporal Klinger that they merely have 'a summer cottage' in Crabapple Cove, but all other references, including in the book and film, are to Hawkeye being from Maine."
I meant to respond to MrsPhilHarris. Sorry!
I mentioned that too before I saw your post.

No need to be sorry. I kinda figured it was something like that. Merry Christmas!
