Transcription:

December 9, 1942/Dear Miss Breed,/We received your books today and we are thanking you very very much./I am sorry I did not write for a long time but since school started homework and etc. kept me busy. /When Jack received your books he jumpped with joy. In our small library we don't have nice and new books like these so he phrases them very much. We would like to show you are appreciation but in Poston we do not very many things around./I tried to show my appreciation by carving out the name "Clara" on muskeet and making a name pin for you. My Mother made a few artificial flowers and my older brother put them together. Most all mothers here are making artificial flowers for decoration. We sent these articals same time as this letter. (over)/I don't know how the climate is in San Diego but up here is is about 30 F in mornings. Last Sunday it was 26 F in the morning./Sometime when you have time please write and let us know how things are and if S.D. is changed very much. /Untill we correspond again, take good care of yourself and keep in good health. /Sincerely yours/William Watanabe
