1 letter and envelope from Hisako Watanabe to Clara Breed.

Nov. 22, 1943/Dear Miss Breed,/Please pardon the long delay. I know I should have written sooner but I have been very busy with my job./I don't have much time so I'll get right down to business. I am taking a few minutes off (during office hours) to write you a few lines./
I am sending you a package which I hope you receive in good condition. Enclosed in this package are: 1 box made of cardboard and crepe paper, and 1 round flower (I don't know what you would call it, so I'll just say it is a flower--although it isn't). Please hang it up with the tassel hanging down. It is all made of crepe paper. I hope this helps to make your Christmas a happy one. /Sorry, I have to be in such a hurry but you will hear from me again./Sincerely yours,/Hisako Watanabe/P.S. Please write me.
