Corporal Kiyoshi Oishi
gThe Letter to My Sisterh

@@@Sei-chan, thank you for your letter. I have read it over and over. I never thought that you would be so happy with the money I have sent to you. There is no need for you to offer the money on the kamidana*, so just buy what you need and spend it. Since my wage is high and I donft spend much money in the corps, Ifll send money to you every month so your wallet wonft get empty. Please take care, and pass my best wishes on to my uncle and aunt.

Your Brother

*a household Shinto altar; traditionally, Japanese people pray and make offerings to a kamidana everyday, or on special occasions.
