Description
A letter from Emiko Katayama to Office of Dependency Benefits, War Department. She writes from the Granada camp where she had been incarcerated. It details her situations: she had been hospitalized prior to the war and was transferred to the camp directly from the hospital. Her health conditions have not been fully improved and limited her activities. She needs special diets which the camp can't supply. She has no clothing with her since she was not incarcerated from her home but sent from the hospital.
