1 letter and envelope from Katherine Tasaki to Clara Breed.

Poston, Arizona/Dec. 3, 1943/Dear Miss Breed,/Thank you ever so much for the book. I just received it today. From the first, I knew I would like it, but it turned out even better when I read it./When I was cleaning out my box the other day, I happened to come across this old stationary, or what is left, so I decided to make use of it. (I got it in S.D.)/I imagine you are busier than ever. Mamma says the canteen has picked up a lot in business because of the children, due to the fact that only a bridge separates the school from the canteen./Miss Breed, I don't think I had any bad marks on my library card at home, did I? Well, that doesn't happen to be the case out here. My school library books are around two weeks due, and my public library books are about one week over-due!/Tomorrow, if I can go, I am going to pay my debts, but I can't walk too much because I haven't gone to school very regularly. I have a cold, and I'm alway's getting fever./Mamma's telling me I have to go to bed now because I will get cold. /It looks like I'll never get to write a very long letter, because nothing ever happens!/Love, /Katherine/P.S. Give my love to all my friends, and tell them to write./[on inside of envelope flap]/P.S. No 2/Annie & Jennie haven't written lately. Try to remind them. Will write to Miss Mcnary
