Letter to Keizaburo "Kei" Koyama from his wife, Teru Koyama, dated Sept. 1, 1943. In the upper left corner is an "EXAMINED" stamp. The letter is brown and has a water stain along the right side. In the letter Teru updates Kei on their friends' situations in Minidoka: several had children leave for jobs outside or to join the Army. She talks about a recent drowning; she says that the body was found and expresses worry for the deceased's mother. She writes about a pain she has in her ear now, and advises Kei to save money for his trip home.
