CSU Dominguez Hills Okine Collection

A letter from Makoto Okine to his father, Seiichi Okine in Hawthorne, California. This letter is probably written in Italy where Makoto is stationed as a U.S. Army soldier and mailed via New York by the U.S. Army Postal Service. He regrets not being able to write to his father for a long time because he did not know where his family has been. He also congratulates on the marriage of his sister, Hatsuno Hotty Okine. He assumes that his brother, Masao Okine, has arrived in Japan even though he has not heard from Masao yet. The handwritten notes on the back of the envelope read: The letter mailed on January 15, 1946 arrived on February 12 [in Japanese].
