Photocopy of a declassified handwritten letter from Mrs. A.C. Goodenough to Edward J. Ennis, Director, Enemy Alien Control Unit. Mrs. A.C. Goodenough writes about Dr. and Mrs. Koyama raised their children in a Christian home with American values. She is worried that the three children will be exposed to bad influences due to the current ongoing war. She feels that they need their father's help and presence at this time. She also mention's Mrs. Koyama's poor health and prior surgeries that has left her unable to take care of her children. She concludes her letter by stating she feels that Dr. Koyama is fully loyal to the United States, has never done anything to harm his adopted country, and that she and her husband fully support the Koyama family.
