1 letter and envelope from Louise Ogawa to Clara Breed.

April 13, 1943/Dear Miss Breed,/My letters are getting a little frequent, isn't it? But this time it is just a little note./How are you, Miss Breed? Still working hard I bet. Day by day I am being toasted brown by the Poston sun. How is San Diego weather?/Today we had to write a composition about our home town. This certainly was an easy topic! I had so much to write I didn't know when to stop. Usually I know when to stop but do not know when or how to start. I imagine my English teacher will be waiting to go to San Diego very soon./
Well, I just dropped you a line to say I am sending a little something through the mail. Please await its arrive and I hope you will enjoy it./
Most Sincerely,/Louise Ogawa
