1 postcard from Margaret Arakawa to Clara Breed.

Poston, Arizona/Aug. 29, 1942/Dear Miss Breed!/We were evacuated in the first move from Santa Anita to Camp III Poston Arizona which is 23 miles from Parker. We left last Wed Aug 26 at 8:30 and arrived here the next day at 3:30. Now the whole San Diego county has been reunited here. Everything is just fine all except for the dust. The heat is around 100 and little over. But I am used of this from Santa Anita./I have not heard from Miss Fay so I presume she is on her way to the Pacific coast. She wanted so much to comes and see me at the end of Aug at Santa Anita but now I am too far. Miss Breed thanks a lot for the past + best wishes to you. Sincerely, Margaret
