Dearest Molly,

 

Gee thanks a million for writing to me. Sure glad to know someone remembers me. I certainly havenít forgotten you. Iíll never forget those days.

 

Oh! Thanks for the swell picture. Thatís one way I can remember you.

 

I guess Junko tells you everything about the camp life. But Iíll tell you a few more things. Every Sunday we have ice-cream we get, at times, watermelon, cantaloupe, oranges, apricots, apples, peaches and lot of swell things. Gosh everything out here is swell. People think Iím bored and that camp life is monotonous but heck with those rumors. I have fun. We have movies, talent shows, concerts, dances, and everything for pleasure. Since I came here I have plenty of exerciseÖ

Öthat Iíve grown plenty tall. ††††

 

Sure would like to hear about Roosevelt. Please write in often and tell me what youíre doing and etc. Write later,

 

Sayonara

 

With love,

 

Yuri Shimokochi
