CSU Dominguez Hills Okine Collection

A letter from Kenjiro Okine in Hiroshima, Japan to his brother and sister-in-law, Seiichi and Tomeyo Okine. He is thankful to the Okines for the letter and gift package. He lists the items included: raisins, candies, towels, ajinomoto [monosodium glutamate], and salt. It appears that he has been craving sugar but sugar wasn't included. The letter is resealed with the tape, "OPENED BY MIL. CEN. CIVIL MAILS" by the Civil Censorship Detachment. The arrival date, August 21, 1947, is recorded on the backside of the envelope.
