1 postcard from Jack Watanabe to Clara Breed.

10-6-42/Dear Miss Breed,/This is just a line to let you know that we received the books that you recently sent. I want to thank you for all those wonderful books that you sent. I can't tell you in words how much we all appreciated them. /We are now in a strange place--Poston, Arizona. I doubt whether this is even on the map. It's near Parker (a small town) This is located in the South-western part of Arizona. There are many Caucasian school teachers here. School started yesterday for grammer, junior, + high school grades. There is no restriction--hardly--on visitors. Just so you let these people know a few days in advance and get a "pass". Just thought I'd let you know--/We're right in the midst of a thunderstorm. The rain is coming down in "sheets". Lightning is awful. This is the worst storm I've ever been in. Will write more about this place later. Thanks again for the books./Bye/Jack Watanabe
