Transcription:
December 10, 1942/Dear Miss Breed, /I want to thank you again for the enjoyable books you sent to Florence and me. Florence was "tickled pink" with the book you sent her, and I can hardly wait to read mine./We are finally getting chairs for each room. Soon, we will have books and it will be like a regular school. The mornings being so cold, we are having classes outdoors around a fire./Thomas will be a year old next month. I can hardly wait for that day. He will have to walk soon, because at the rate he is growing it is a "task" to carry him./This week end we are going to have a Christmas Bazaar in order to raise money to buy the children of Poston Christmas gifts. From what I hear it is going to be a gala affair. There are going to be tournaments, talent shows, movies, many kind of eats and dancing. I hope the bazaar will be a success for the little children look forward to Christmas./My teacher tells me it is difficult to get meat and dairy products in San Francisco. Is this also true in San Diego?/Please give Florence and my regards to Miss McNary./Gratefully,/
Margaret Ishino

DEAR MISS BREED/I WANT to THANK YOU FOR THE ENJOYABLE BOOK YOU SENT to ME HOW IS THE LIBRARY/SINCERLY/Florence
