Letter to Clara Breed from Margaret and Florence Ishino, Poston, Arizona, December 10, 1942

Margaret and Florence were sisters. Most of Margaret's letters were upbeat, and included a drawing from Florence, who was six years old at the time. Margaret loved to read, and still has some of the books that Miss Breed sent her all those years ago.

Transcription:

December 10, 1942/Dear Miss Breed, /I want to thank you again for the enjoyable books you sent to Florence and me. Florence was "tickled pink" with the book you sent her, and I can hardly wait to read mine./We are finally getting chairs for each room. Soon, we will have books and it will be like a regular school. The mornings being so cold, we are having classes outdoors around a fire./Thomas will be a year old next month. I can hardly wait for that day. He will have to walk soon, because at the rate he is growing it is a "task" to carry him./This week end we are going to have a Christmas Bazaar in order to raise money to buy the children of Poston Christmas gifts. From what I hear it is going to be a gala affair. There are going to be tournaments, talent shows, movies, many kind of eats and dancing. I hope the bazaar will be a success for the little children look forward to Christmas./My teacher tells me it is difficult to get meat and dairy products in San Francisco. Is this also true in San Diego?/Please give Florence and my regards to Miss McNary./Gratefully,/ Margaret Ishino DEAR MISS BREED/I WANT to THANK YOU FOR THE ENJOYABLE BOOK YOU SENT to ME HOW IS THE LIBRARY/SINCERLY/Florence
