1 letter and envelope from Elizabeth Kikuchi to Clara Breed.
Dear Miss Breed,/How are you getting along? Now that school is started I suppose you are busy at the library./ We are now in Poston Camp 3. We arrived here the 27th of August. The San Diego people are all together. We are all happy. This place is just like a desert, in fact it is. It is dusty here + have quite a few whirlwinds. Today we think we will have a duststorm. There isn't any school started yet but it will start in October. We make all sorts of handicraft./Last week my father, brother + sister went fishing to Colorado River it is 3 miles away. They started 5: AM and came back 7: PM./Before I came here I wrote you a letter but I didn't send it. I received your book the day after I came back from the hospital. I was very happy to receive it. At that time I had pneumonia. I took the book "House for Elizabeth" and it kept me from being lonesome. My mother sends her best regards to your mother./ Truly yours,/Elizabeth Kikuchi
