Yellowed envelope addressed to Dr. Keizaburo Koyama in Camp Livingston from R. Maeda at Minidoka. The envelope is postmarked April 28, 1943. Along the top of the envelope is "5/11-43" written in red pencil. Along the left edge of the envelope is clear tape that has the number 149 printed on it. The tape wraps around to the back and has the words “EXAMINED BY” printed on the tape. On the back of the envelope is a purple "RECEIVED" stamp dated May 9, 1943. Inside the envelope is a letter written in Japanese that has not been translated. Some parts appear to be discussing the weather and close friends.
