Kenjiro and Miyuki “Kay” Kida Family Collection

Envelope addressed to Miyuki "Kay" Kida in Nyssa, Oregon. Letter from Vickie Waldron, signed "Aunt Vickie," to the Kida family, addressed as "friends," dated December 9, 1943. Writes that she and Ethel planned on visiting Sarah "Sade" Pyatt, but thought it might upset her to not be able to go home with them. Later told they would have to arrange for her to go someplace else as she caused so much trouble (told to take her to Medical Lake near Spokane). She is returning a check from the Kida family for Mrs. Pyatt's board and care they had sent to her.
