A letter from Jokichi Yamanaka in Hiroshima, Japan to his brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Seiichi and Tomeyo Okine. Jokichi expresses his gratitude for the gifts that were sent by his niece, Hatsuno Hotty Befu. He explains that while the gifts from Seiichi mainly include clothing, he is often running out of food in Japan and is thus so thankful to receive the gift of food from Hatsuno. Jokichi also updates on the status of his application for a reentry permit to the U.S., assuming that he would be able to return in May or June. The letter is resealed with the tape, "OPENED BY MIL. CEN. CIVIL MAILS," and stamped with "C.C.D. J-2964" by the Civil Censorship Detachment. The arrival date of the letter, February 18, 1948, is recorded on the backside of the envelope.
