The late Mrs. Etsuko Sugimoto’s rare letter was found! It was printed on Niigata-Nippo on Friday, November 19th.
Because the picture of her letter in the article was so rough that it was a little hard for Yoshy to type her letter here.
As it’s been in the midnight, let me write her English here.
This Japanese translated by Yoshy is going to be uploaded in the near future including her history, etc.
My dear Mr. Stillharmer,
Your constant letter was received with appreciation. It was very kind of you and Mrs. Bave to have called upon me and my little family.
Through Mrs. Bave, I learned that an account of this illness of the honored member in your household is needed the presence of Mrs. Stillharmer at home.
I appreciate it thoroughly. Please let me allow to make an acquaintance with her in future.
Mrs. Bave is inviting both my daughter and myself to her home, so I hope to have the pleasure of seeing you.
In deep respect,
Etsu Inagaki Sugimoto
