A letter from Natue Okine in Itsukaichi, Hiroshima, Japan to her uncle and aunt, Seiichi and Tomeyo Okine. She writes that they are going to start harvesting wheat soon in Japan. She thanks for the cloth that Tomeyo sent to her and informs her that she has made her clothes by using it. In the letter, she expresses her desire to immigrate to the U.S. The letter is resealed with the tape, "OPENED BY MIL. CEN. CIVIL MAILS," and stamped with "C.C.D. J-2903" by the Civil Censorship Detachment. The arrival date of the letter, June 28, 1948, is recorded on the backside of the envelope.
