The envelope is addressed to Dr. Keizaburo Koyama at Camp Livingston from his wife, Teru Koyama, at Minidoka. Postmarked Nov 12, 1942. In red pencil “Dec 14-42” is written on the left side of the envelope. On the back of the envelope is a large white sticker that says "EXAMINED BY/U.S.A. 219." The letter is dated Nov. 10, 1942.
