Description:Handwritten letter from Paul H. [Kusuda] to [Afton] Nance, 1944, Feb 9 .
607 W. Oakdale Ave Chicago 14, Illinois Monday evening February 9, 1944 Dear Mrs. Nance, Thank you very much for helping my sister out of her predicament. The onus of being a brother is not great by any means but your help has done considerable work in lightening it. It is kind of you to help so much and I cannot express my appreciation as well as my parents. Today I received a packet from the WRA office in San Francisco. It seems that you wrote to Dr. Robert E. Gibson to have him send me material on the relocated Nisei and their parents. I tried to get on the mailing list before but did not succeed so you can see that I am grateful for your thoughtfulness. I did not know that you had that much “drag” with the War Relocation Authority. I was acquainted with Dr. Gibson when he was in Manzanar but did not realize that he would be able to help me. Quite obviously, I still don’t know my way around things. Muchas gracias para todo. (Influence of California on me). Hasta luego mi amiga, Paul H. P.S. This afternoon I sent off a bond to you. It’s for your birthday, Christmas, New Year, Valentine’s, etc. I’m sorry I couldn’t send it off sooner, but I couldn’t get around to it. The very best of everything to you! PHK
