I received the Easter eggs from Kazue the day before Easter. And I am very very sorry that I did not write to you sooner. I was going to to write to you write to you from Los Angeles, but I was so busy I could not write. I am now in Strathmore. I have stayed in Los Angeles for two weeks then moved to Strathmore. I have stayed in Strathmore only nine days but it seems like months. Will I will tell you something about Strathmore. Will it is a very pretty place and have mountains all around us. The mountains are all very pretty. The weather is fine up here but for the last couple of nights it rained. How is the weather down there. I am having a nice time up here and Gee! I sure miss that old Malaga Cover School and all my playmates. I don’t have anything else to say so I will know close my letter. Until I hear from you Good-by Always Yours, Sadayo P/S. Pleas tell everyone “HELLO” for me. Good-bye
