A letter from Makoto Okine who is probably stationed in Italy as a U.S. military soldier to his father, Seiichi Okine in the Rohwer incarceration camp, Arkansas. He describes his vacation, staying in a hotel and eating at a restaurant. He states that he has not had a chance to sleep in a bed with sheets or eat restaurant meals for a year. He also assumes that his brother, Masao Okine, would be discharged and return from Japan to the U.S. in May or June, 1946. The letter is mailed via New York by U.S. Army Postal Service. Seiichi Okine records the arrival date of the letter, October 16, 1945, and the replied date , October 17, 1945.
