Transcription:

May 13, 1942/Dear Miss Breed,/Many thanks for your lovely card and letter which I received this morning. I am home in the morning this week as I go on the afternoon and night shift. The system is so arranged so that we girls alternate the shifts every week. This way it is fairer, and everyone seems to enjoy the work more./Shizuye is in the Recreation Dept. as a teacher. She has a group of 7 year old boys and they really are an active bunch of boys. She comes home and tells us of her various experiences during her day of teaching--it seems she has one very naughty boy in her class who constantly keeps the class in an uproar with his mischievous wrong doings./The weather here has been quite warm. A hot sun but a cold wind along with it. This morning the sun is out but it is sort of chilly outside./Again may I say many thanks for your grand card and Shizuye and I both send you our best wishes and regards./Sincerely,/Yoshiko Kubo
