1 letter and envelope from Katherine Tasaki to Clara Breed.
July 24, 1942/Poston, Arizona/Dear Miss Breed,/Thank you for the soap bubbles. I enjoyed them very much./Night before last we had a rain storm. I sure mean storm! Serveral roofs were blown off, a our wires broke se we don't have any light yet. Our roof almost came off, and every time a wind came, it shook our room. There was a whole lot of thunder and lighting./How did you like your visit to Santa Anita?/I sure wish I was back there again. I hear they get ice cream + cake + watermelon. We get watermelon, but we have to pay for them. I guess everybody thinks I'm going crazy. The reason is that I am learning Pig Latin!/You ought to hear me./I sure wish I brought a dairy with me. I certinly would have a lot to write. This is what I would write:/The food is awful/The heats terrific/Whirlwind--dust/ Home sich/This is only half. Too bad you couldn't come up here and see for yourself./Yours Truly, /Katherine Tasaki
