Gift of Elizabeth Y. Yamada


1 letter and envelope from Louise Ogawa to Clara Breed.

Dec. 28, 1942/Dear Miss Breed,/I certainly am bothering you lately. Hope you will forgive me./This is about the sweater I wrote you about. This afternoon I was in such a hurry writing that letter that I forgot to mention a few things. I would like to have a long sleeve boxy pullover sweater. A fitting one will do if boxy ones are not available. "V" neck or round neck will be fine./My bust measurement is 30 inches so I am not very large. I probably can wear size 12 in children's size. For I wear size 12 in children's slacks, skirts, dresses. If it is the adult I would probably wear the smallest size they have. Please do not rush this--time is not important. Anytime during your leisure hour will be fine./Most sincerely,/Louise Ogawa/Please use your own judgement as to the store./
