A letter from Kamekichi Nakano in Japan to his brother-in-law, Seiichi Okine. Kamekichi thanks Seiichi for the gifts brought by Jokichi Yamanaka, including sugar and ajinomoto [monosodium glutamate], as there is a scarcity of food in Japan. He describes Masao's visit when he was stationed in Japan and his wishes to meet the Okines', with hopes that they will visit Japan. He also includes updates on other family members and the upcoming return to the U.S. of some of their relatives, Fumiko and Jokichi Yamanaka. He informs that Jokichi Yamanaka lost his house because of the atomic bombing in Hiroshima. The arrival date of the letter, September 25, 1947, is recorded on the backside of the envelope.
