A letter from Masao Okine to his sister, Dorothy Okine. He writes from Tokyo, Japan, where he is stationed as a U.S. Army soldier. He asks Dorothy to send him cigarettes, candies, and gum. He sent the letter to her on April 23, 1946, however, it returned to Masao. He adds the notes, explaining why the letter was returned to him. It appears that Masao mailed the letter to Masao's wife, May Okine, in Chicago, Illinois, and she forwarded it to Dorothy Okine, addressing Mr. Seiichi Okine. The arrival date of the letter, May 27, 1946, is recorded on the backside of the envelope.
