Photocopy of a declassified document labeled "RECONSIDERATION." It finds that Keizaburo Koyama should be interned due to being a member of the Fatherland Society (Sokoku Kai) and the Japanese Association of Portland. Despite having letters signed by 15 white Americans affirming his loyalty, the board did not consider their testimony as the letters were not submitted in affidavit form nor did they talk about Koyama's activities.
