Letter from Sally thanking Kimiko for a package of gifts, mostly clothes for the children. Visiting friends Al and Connie Clempner (?) have moved to the area and Sally is distressed about having to spend time with their badly behaved child. A Japanese architect friend has suggested that they apply for a Ford Foundation grant and go to Japan for a year but Sally has doubts. They have also met another Japanese man who is in America for a music scholarship and seems lonely; Sally feels exhausted by the pressure to take on so many guests.

April 8, 1952
