Dear Joe & Towru

I recieved Towru's two letters last Friday, which were written on Feb 18 & 21. Then today, I got Joe's short letter. We enjoyed both of them very much and was very thankful to know that you have been well.

I was worried very much though whole month, and was praying every night.

When I came home I asked Masako, "Did a letter come from Chicago?" I was realy disappointed every day.

This is Feb 28 and it is my birth day. I am 44 years old as you know, and very much satisfied for you have remembered my birth day although you have been busy always.

I am very sorry that Towru has to be back in Manzanar before join in the Army. We can't say anything about the draft. I am hoping & wish you good luck and always be in faith.

Last week, the segregation was ended. From 14 B.l.k Saito, Mikami Hamamoto, Higa, Minami, Nagao Families went Tule lake. Momo, Mariko Kitagawa left last week, did you know that?

I imagine there will be no young people in camp in near future. Hiroko-san and Jimmy Ito are going to be engaged some one told me. I think they are very good couple, but may be Manzanar dema.

Towru you might leave to Manzanar before this letter is reach to Chicago. I am waiting very much your coming to home.

Today Mrs Takemura gave me very painful letter. All mother's harts are just same to her. Joe I am waiting your letter very much, take good care of yourself. Good by

Your Mother
