1 letter and envelope from Margaret Ishino to Clara Breed + drawing by Florence Ishino.
January 18, 1943 / Dear Miss Breed, / Thank you very kindly for sending me such a worthwhile book. History being my favorite and biographies being my favorite reading, "There Were Giants in the Land" is certainly a two in one book. A few authors are familiar to me; and I agree 100 per cent with Mr. Morgenthau's introduction. By reading this book, I can learn what these 28 giants did for us Americans. / Today has certainly been dusting and chilly throughout the day. The weather here has been very changeable lately. How is the weather in San Diego? / Florence drew you a picture of a house with an apple tree and flowers on each side. She hopes you will like it. It will not be long before Thomas becomes a year old. He is growing bigger day by day. Whenever I write about Thomas I just wish I could send you a snapshot of him. He has not taken one picture, but I can remember him as a baby even now. / I am sending you a copy of our school news paper. I am very proud of it and I think it is equal to the "Russ," the San Diego Hish paper. The students get it weekly free of charge. / Please give our regards to Miss McNary. / Sincerely, / Margaret Ishino
