1 postcard from Tetsuzo (Ted) Hirasaki to Clara Breed.

May 6, 1943/Dear Miss Breed,/The first contingent of volunteers (45) are leaving for Salt Lake City Monday May 10th. The rest will follow daily, 45 at a time./Hope you can come May 10. We are having a Spring Exhibit May 8, 9, 10. It is somewhat like a county fair. All articles on exhibit will be Poston made. It will be a good chance to see the handicraft done in this camp./Fusa says that she is going to be in camp for a while longer. /The weather is rather hot on the afternoons now. Outside temperature is seldom below 100 It is not too bad because humidity is very low. Not like San Diego's moist heat. /Sincerely yours/Ted.
