Description:Handwritten letter from Paul H. [Kusuda] to [Afton] Nance, 1943 Oct 10.
607 W. OAKDALE AVE. CHICAGO 14, ILLINOIS SUNDAY OCTOBER 10, 1943 Dear Mrs. Nance, Your latest was finally forwarded to me. Thanks for enclosing the T-WP Bulletin of Louis Adamic. Does he still put out those bulletins? I was wondering because I haven’t received one for quite a long while. You mentioned typing out “twenty five letters for the Pasadena Fair Play Committee to send to the California Senators and Representatives in Washington.” What was the general drift of the memo --- or is it confidential? Is there anything that I can do to help? If so, please give me the word and I’ll try my hand at something or other. Yesterday my brother came to Chicago from Manzanar. Now, he is living with me. In the near future perhaps my father, mother, and sister may come out. Last week I went to see the Dean of Admissions at the University of Chicago. Since I was in a Center, I am not eligible for entrance. That cooks that angle. Now, I shall begin casting around for some other place. The only trouble is that I don’t seem to have enough time to devote to letter writing to ascertain my chances of getting a scholarship and where I would like to enter. Don’t you work too hard! Paul H.
