1 postcard from Tetsuzo (Ted) Hirasaki to Clara Breed.

11/19/1943 / Dear Miss Breed, / Received your card and clipping today. The clipping was very welcome since several of my friends working with me in the mess hall used to attend the Buddhist Church. / My partner in dishwashing is a young Seattle Nisei. He had been out on seasonal leave in Ogden when recruiting for harvest work started in Utah. He is quite a nice fellow. We dishwash one day and pot wash the next. There are five of us in the crew. All but this young chap in the mess hall are Postonites of III. Oh, there is one fellow from Camp II. / It rained a bit today. Saw a full rainbow this afternoon, the first in quite a number of years. / Could you send me a road map of Calif. + Oregon as I would like to use it on homeward trip? / Sincerely Ted.
