Envelope and letter addressed to Yuri Domoto from Yoshito Shibata. In the letter Yoshito writes about his memories of Easter and the possibility of how he will celebrate this year, inquires about Yuri's plans, his visits to Minneapolis and St. Paul, where he and other soldiers are asked if they are Japanese or Chinese, and if they answer Chinese they get better service. He also talks about his time thus far at Fort Snelling, and the reclassification interview he recently completed there.
