CSU Dominguez Hills Okine Collection

A letter from Minoru Sasaki in Hiroshima, Japan, to his brother-in-law, Seiichi Okine. He thanks Seiichi for the gift, including ajinomoto [monosodium glutamate], sugar, candies, and pencils. He describes the shortages of basic necessities in Japan and states that all children under age 8 do not know the real taste of sugar. He also expresses his relief that they are able to exchange letters and send gifts between two countries again after the war. The letter is resealed with the tape, "OPENED BY MIL. CEN. CIVIL MAILS," and stamped with "C.C.D. J-4435" by the Civil Censorship Detachment. The arrival date of the letter, October 14, 1947, is recorded on the backside of the envelope.
