Description:Handwritten letter from Mizuye [Hirose] to [Afton] Nance, 1943 Aug 13.
8K-7-E Amache, Colo. August 13, 1943 Dear Mrs. Nance, Thank you ever so much for the beautiful compact and comb set you send me for graduation gift. They are sure a pretty set that I’m really trilled. I surely will cherish it for ever. Now a days over here is quite hot compare to the kind of weather we were used to, but we walk to school every day to summer school. This new school building is so cool that we don’t feel the hotness as we would inside the barrack. Is there still organization such as the International Red Cross? I would very much like to know all about it. It seems that the two Yazaki girls are leaving the camp to work in Chicago. I think they are taking domestic work. Thank you again for the gift. I’ll never forget what thoughtful people teachers are. I never enjoyed them as I did this year. They take such personal interest in us like you. If people were all like these people there won’t be such thing as war. Very best of luck in your new work, Most sincerely Mizuye
