A letter from Jokichi Yamanaka in Hiroshima, Japan to his brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Seiichi and Tomeyo Okine. This letter is mailed by Masao Okine, who is stationed as a Nisei soldier in Japan, via the U.S. Army Postal Service. In the letter, Jokichi informs Seiichi and Tomeyo Okine that Masao Okine brought their letters and gifts to him. He also describes the severe living conditions and inadequate supplies of rationed food in Japan. The handwritten notes on the backside of the envelope record the arrival date of the letter, July 8, 1946, and the replied date, July 18, 1946.
