A letter from Haruto Okine in Hiroshima, Japan, to his uncle, Seiichi Okine. The letter is mailed by Naoji Okine, Seiichi's brother. In the letter, Haruto thanks Seiichi Okine for the gifts and gives congratulations to Masao Okine on his new baby. He hopes that Seiichi will return to Japan someday when Japan rebuilds from the war damage. He also requests some old winter clothes for his children to wear as it is difficult to attain basic necessities in Japan after the war. The letter is resealed with the tape, "OPENED BY MIL. CEN. CIVIL MAILS," and stamped with "C.C.D. J-4436" by the Civil Censorship Detachment. The arrival date of the letter, February 28, 1948, is recorded on the backside of the envelope.
