Letter to Clarence R. Walker from Gonkichi Miyagi. Gonkichi talks about receiving 125 dollars from Clarence Walker for Clarence having sold something of Gonkichi's. Gonkichi tells Clarence he does not expect to return to California any time soon. Gonkichi talks how he feels about his grandson William Miyagi being drafted into the army while the rest of the family is in camp. Per donor, letter was likely translated and written by a younger relative as Gonkichi did not know English.
