Fujio Hata requests a rehearing from Judge J. Charles Dennis in Seattle, Washington to reconsider his request of parole from Lordsburg U.S. Army Internment Camp so that he could be reunified with his family incarcerated at Tule Lake Concentration Camp. His son was sick and being treated at Tule Lake Hospital.

Fujio Morikawa kept a journal while incarcerated at Lordsburg U.S. Army internment camp. In his journal included translations of letters, news articles, and announcements; notes on English grammar and mathematics; essays on different topics; and calligraphy.
