A letter from Jokichi Yamanaka in Hiroshima, Japan, to his brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Seiichi and Tomeyo Okine. Jokichi congratulates on the Okines' grandchild and includes updates on issues of his family, the Sasaki family, and the Nakano family in Japan. He also describes high inflation in post-war Japan, listing high prices of food and other necessities. He regrets not being able to afford to offer Masao Okine rice when Masao visited him from Tokyo. The arrival date of the letter, October 14, 1947, is recorded on the backside of the envelope.
