Letter from James Albert "Al" Johnson to Miyuki "Kay" Kida dated November 29. He is planning on visiting Mrs. Pyatt to see how she is. He says he will report back to Kay about how she is and what her mental status is. He does not think she will last long. Advises George to fix the Chevrolet truck up and sell it again (or have Al sell it in White Salmon) because he "won't get anything for it after the war." Gives forecast about how the war will end. In an addition to this letter, dated December 5, Al tells Kay that Mrs. Pyatt was moved to a hospital at North Bonneville or Old Folks. Says he will visit the Kida family at Christmas. Letter sent in the same envelope as seen in ddr-one-3-56.
