19421218 - Seven Okamura Siblings signatures on typed letter to US District Atty, Francis Biddle

 This startling letter, hand-signed by all seven children of Suyeichi Okamura, are asking for their father to be released to join their mother in Amache, the Granada, Colorado WRA camp so that some of them as loyal and responsible adult citizens could take part in the release from camp program to work outside. They also list their father's business associates as character references.
