Dr. Keizaburo Koyama Family Collection

Envelope addressed to Dr. Kei Koyama at Fort Missula from his wife, Teru Koyama, in Portland. Postmarked March 24, 1942. In the lower left corner is a "CENSORED" stamp. The enclosed letter, dated March 23, 1942, has the same stamp at the top of the page. Teru writes about receiving his last letter, which made everyone happy; inquires if her last letter was received; and informs him of some issues with closing a deal with the Patterson Company. States that she is not worried about the evacuation since the government is leading it, is grateful that until now things had been good, and prays that they will stay good.
