A response letter from Juan G. de Molina, Minister Counselor in Charge of Japanese Interests, Spanish Embassy in Washington, D.C. to Edna Shigeko Furuya in the Tule Lake Segregation Center. It notifies her that they would ensure that the luggage of the 97 Japanese repatriates who were not able to return to Japan by the Grispholm exchange vessel in September 1943 should be shipped back to them. Names and barracks numbers in the Tule Lake Segregation Center of the Japanese repatriates were listed and Seijiro Ogawa was one of them. Edna Shigeko Furuya is a Nisei and applied for repatriation from the Heart Mountain camp. She and Seijiro Ogawa were acquaintances since incarceration in the Heart Mountain camp and both were the repatriates who failed to board the ship.
