1 letter and envelope from Yaeko Hirasaki to Clara Breed.
August 11, 1942/Dear Miss Breed,/I should be thoroughly ashamed of myself (I am!!) for not writing. I'd like you to accept my long delayed thank you in regard to the glasses./Now that's off my chest--how are you? As for myself I'm just melting in this hot weather we are having over here./Today especially is very warm. Day before yesterday (rather I should have said night) it just rained cats and dogs. The following day smelled so clean & fresh--I took a walk around the large track. /Gee, you ought to see my brother now!--He's just as husky as can be and tanned!--as for that matter we are all tanned out here. /I'll close now--I hear the dinner gong--we're having steak tonight!/Sincerely,/Yaeko Hirasaki/P.S. Thanks again
