Kenjiro and Miyuki “Kay” Kida Family Collection

Letter from George Kida, addressed to "Grandma" (Sarah "Sade" Pyatt). George writes that there had been a misunderstanding about his mother, writing that Mrs. Pyatt had wrote that his mother "was in the worst scrape of any of us" and so had assumed she was ill. He called the Krogmans for news of his mother, who confirmed she was fine, and got the chance to talk to James Albert "Al" Johnson. Notes that Kenjiro is working about 7 miles from camp near Adrian, Oregon, while George worked 35 miles from camp. They are living in tents.
