A letter from Fusako Sasaki in Hiroshima, Japan to Seiichi and Tomeyo Okine. She writes about the package of gifts from the Okines and appreciates their help. The package arrived on May 29, 1948 and included cloth, clothes, a sweater, sugar, soap bars, candies, tobacco, and medicines which are scarce in post-war Japan. She laments about the high inflation and low quality of products in Japan compared to American products. She informs that she has brought some items from the package to Tsukiyo Okasako and is going to bring other items to the Nakano and the Yamanakas as the Okines requested. She learns that Fumiko Yamanaka has left for the U.S., and regrets not being able to give her any gifts to bring with her to the U.S. The letter is resealed with the tape, "OPENED BY MIL. CEN. CIVIL MAILS," and stamped with "C.C.D. J-4311" by the Civil Censorship Detachment. See this object in the California State Universities Japanese American Digitization project site: oki_03_26_001
