A letter from Ayame Okine in Chicago, Illinois, to her parents-in-law, Seiichi and Tomeyo Okine in Hawthorne, California. In the letter, Ayame describes her job in Chicago. She assists in making cameras and helps to light tobaccos. Her work starts at 8:00 AM and ends at 4:30 PM, including a 20-minute break two times. She earns 70 cents per hour. She also thanks her parents-in-law for their letters and financial support to her sister, who has bought a house. Ayame also writes about her husband, Masao Okine, in Japan and expects him to return to the United States in a half month. The handwritten notes on the back of the envelope read: Arrived on January 19, 1946 [in Japanese].
