A father writes to his incarcerated son in Utah. Natsumeda, the father, urges his son to try to keep his stuff in a garage in Los Angeles.
Japanese to English Translation:
I received a postcard from Mrs. Martin. Have you written her, yet?
I heard a new tenant is moving into her place. If possible, ask her to keep your stuff in her garage until around April in the next year and you will pay for the price she asks. I’ll take care of this soon.
Decide and act soon.
Sayonara, so long
