A letter from Masayo Hasegawa, in Neyahawa, Osaka, Japan. Masayo is responding to Kan Wada’s request for a Buddhist altar for Tomoji Wada. Masayo reports to Kan Wada about the shipment: She enclosed Tomoji's Buddhist memorial tablet along with all accompanied tools and shipped it to Los Angeles. The shipping fee cost 14,521 yen and the wooden box cost 1,300 yen. Masayo also expresses appreciation for Tomoji Wada’s financial support in the past and the clothes sent from Kan's daughter, Mary. Tomoji Wada was an interpreter, bookkeeper, operator of a grocery store, and manufacturer of tofu and mochi on Terminal Island, California prior to World War II. He established a tofu manufacturing plant at the Poston camp in Arizona during the war, and became a gardener after returning from the incarceration camp to Los Angeles, California. The collection consists of receipts, ledgers, taxes, correspondence, photographs, scrapbooks, journals, guidebooks, immigration materials, and incarceration camp records pertaining to Tomoji Wada and his family. Materials include born-digital objects created and transferred from the donor.
