1 letter and envelope from Yoshiko Kubo to Clara Breed.

April 25, 1942/Dear Miss Breed,/This is just a very short letter to let you know that I received your book. I was very surprised to go to the Post Office and find a package waiting for me. The surprise turned to real pleasure when I saw what the package contained. Many many thanks and here is wishing you the best of everything. /The "Pacemaker"--the weekly paper here came out yesterday (second edition) and one of the articles was about the opening of a circulating library soon. I will write again and let you know when the library does open./The family sends their best regards to the library staff and Miss McNary./Sincerely,/Yoshiko Kubo
