19431217 - 1o2 pg Handwritten letter to AEC Director from Kimiye (Okamura) Ono

 In this letter my mother Kimiye Ono writes to Edward J. Ennis, AEC Director to thank him for the recently held rehearing of his case in Sanata Fe and says her mother (Owai Okamura) is over-anxiously awaiting the outcome. My mother further pleas for a favorable decision.This letter must have been written from Denver, Colorado, although no return address was on the letter. My parents, visint Amache, sent a telegram dated 12/22/1943. Maybe their visit started earlier? Maybe that why my Mom and her brother Togo's letter were dated the same?
