1 letter and envelope from Katherine Tasaki to Clara Breed.
Nov. 6, 1943/Poston, Arizona/Dear Miss Breed,/Please forgive me for not writting sooner. I hope you received my package./Last night my mother pulled out one of my tooths, so I have three teeth coming in. Really, it's no laughing matter./My father has relocated outside, so he sends me many things. He said he was going to ask "Santa" if he could get me a coat for Christmas, so my father asked me the size. /I imagine you are busier than ever, now that school has started. This year I think I might enjoy the sixth grade better than the fifth grade./ The cold wether is coming on again. It seems that there will be more rain than last year. I think it is because there is more irregation. It's rather windy today. I wouldn't be surprised if it rained soon./I had better explain why I had to mail Miss McNary's letter with yours. My mother forgot to get stamps yesterday, and the office doesn't open on Sat. or Sun. I hope you don't mind. It's a wonder there's even one stamp left for your letter because yesterday was mom's day off, and she wrote a lot of letters. /Well, Christmas is coming around again. I may not be able to give many preasents this year. I certinly wish I could though./Just for the fun of it I tried some finger nail polish. I don't think I like effect very much. I like Baby Pinks better./I didn't wear my glasses back home, but I have to wear them now. (I got new ones day before yesterday/) They hurt at first, but I don't think that will last very long./Hoping to hear from you soon./Love, /Katherine
