19420824a - 1o3 pg Handwritten letter Owai Okamura to US Atty San Francisco

I believe, by handwriting comparison, that this 3-page letter was writen by daughter-in-law Dorothy Yoshiko (Kato) Okamura for Owai Okamura. This was sent from Merced Assembly Center. This page mentioned tha she had an expensive operation just before being incarcerated in MAC and that her daughter was ill. (I'm not sure which daughter she was referring to, but my mother, Kimiye deliverd our baby sister, Sandi Yoko Ono on August 8, 1942)
