19431217 - Handwritten letter to AEC Director from 11-yr-old Tom Togo Okamura

 This letter from the youngest Okamura siblings to Edward J. Ennis, Alien Enemy Control Director, Washington, DC thanks him for the decision to release his father to rejoin the family in Amache. I wonder about the coincidence of this letter dated the same as my mother, his sister? Also, it sounded if my mother wasn't sure of any decision being made approving Suyeichi's release, but Tom's letter sounded as if his father's release was already approved? Maybe it was just wishful thinking? Maybe my mom, Kimiye was visiting Amache then?
