Letter from James Albert "Al" Johnson to George Kida
Letter and envelope addressed to George Kida in Nyssa, Oregon, from James Albert "Al" Johnson. Letter dated February 23, 1943, envelope postmarked February 25, 1943. James Albert "Al" Johnson brought a letter from George to a banker (Mr. Barton) in regards to the possibility of a loan for George. He believes that the loan is a good opportunity for George. Mr. Barton said that he would like to make the loan for George. Mentions the possibility of George being drafted, but reassures him that his bad hip or else his occupation as a farmer will exempt him. He offers to go before the draft board for George to make his case. Mentions Mr. Dunaway (who the Kidas are working for). Additional letter sent with this one, please see ddr-one-3-40.
