1 letter and envelope from Hisako Watanabe to Clara Breed.

June 10, 1943/Dear Miss Breed,/This is just a brief note to let you know that I received the zipper. I appreciate you sending it so promptly because I did need it. The zipper was for my graduation dress so I was anxious to get it. You were very kind to go to the trouble of getting it for me because I know you must be awfully busy./Did you have enough money? The zipper was very nice and the color matched my dress. I wish you could be here for our graduation. We will be the first class to graduate from Poston./I must close now and do some school studies before going to bed. I'll be waiting to hear from you so write me soon. I will write again and tell you all about my plans./Thank you again,/Hisako Watanabe
