A letter from Naoji Okine in Hiroshima, Japan to his brother, Seiichi Okine. He informs that Seiichi's gifts have been brought by Kenji Okine, including milk, sugar, and soap bars, and appreciates his support. He asks about prices in the U.S. as short supply drives prices high in Japan. He thinks back of his life in the U.S. and is reluctant to purchase any of the products in Japan since the quality is poor and the prices are high. He wishes to meet Seiichi and hopes that Seiichi will be able to visit Japan. He also requests Seiichi to send clothing and razors to him. The handwritten notes on the envelope read: Arrived on December 19; Shipped shirts, pants, and razors on January 7, 1950.
