A letter from Jokichi Yamanaka in Hiroshima, Japan to his brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Seiichi and Tomeyo Okine. Jokichi writes about Masao Okine's visit to his place in Hiroshima, Japan and Masao's bringing the gifts from Seiichi and Tomeyo with him. He also writes of Masao's updates on issues in Hollister, California, where Jokichi used to run a business, "Hollister Seed Co.,"selling and trading vegetable seeds. He also writes about the difficult living conditions in Japan. He wishes to meet Seiichi and Tomeyo again but assumes that it is impossible. This letter is mailed by Masao Okine via San Francisco. On the back of the envelope, Seiichi records the arrival date of the letter, September 13, 1946, and also notes that it is the last letter from Mr. Jokichi Yamanaka.
