Letter from Sarah "Sade" Pyatt to Kida family
Letter from "Grandma" (Sarah "Sade" Pyatt) to her "children" (the Kida family) in Nyssa, Oregon, dated October 30, 1942. Writes that she hopes the war will be over soon. Describes the comings and goings of people in White Salmon, including Vickie (who takes care of Mrs. Pyatt), Mrs. Boyd, and Donnie Miller. Asks what Kenjiro and George are doing for work and if they are making enough to clothe and feed themselves. If not, she says Al can send them some money from the sale of the Kidas' cattle. There was an article in the White Salmon Paper about George selling grass seed and the success he had with it. Mentions that she hasn't seen James Albert "Al" Johnson, who she says is not doing well. She hopes that the Kidas have gotten into a house.
