Transcription:
December 21, 1942 / Dear Miss Breed, / We just don't know how to thank you for all you have done for us, but we certainly appreciate it from the bottom of our hearts. / Being naughty girls, we opened the presents and cannot tell you how thrilled we were! Little Thomas just will not let go of the cute little doll you sent him. Florence was 'tickled pink' over the colored pencils, and thank you for Beautiful Joe. / I know this is very little, but I feel I must send you something in return. Please accept this material made in Japan and these flowers mother made with our sincere wishes for a MERRY, MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY, HAPPY NEW YEAR!! / Gratefully, / Florence and Margaret Ishino / P/S Please give a gardenia to Miss McNary
