1 letter and envelope from Katherine Tasaki to Clara Breed.

Aug. 28, 1943/Poston, Ariz./Dear Miss Breed,/Finally I have found time to write! I have been busy gioing to demonstration class, so there was no time left even to go to the library, for my time is taken up at home too. There might be more time if I didn't have to go to school on Saturday./Right now I have a cold./I'm very sorry that I had to enclose your letter with Annie's, but I just noticed a while ago that there was only one stamp left. I think the Post Office will close in around fifteen minutes, so I I won't have time, because there is always a line./Oh, oh, there goes the dinner bell. I have to hurry, but the next time I will write longer./Love,/ Katherine/P.S./ Sorry about the package, but it's kind of hard to get a lot of bugs./I thank you very much also, to be so kind as to send the books.
