Dear Mr. Drake:
We surely want to thank you for the
wonderful work you have been doing there in the States to get so many
people interested in our Orphanage here in Korea. Many packages have
come from you folks there and we surely are glad for the things that
they have contained. And thank you for your package of new boys clothing.
You must have known that we are always short of boys things. We are
just now writing a new letter to send to the folks who have been so
good as to send things to the Orphanage, and as soon as it is complete
I shall send a copy to you folks. It will have more news in it about
the orphanage and the orphans. AFAK is helping us to build a new dormitory
and kitchen and dining room. We will be glad when they are completed.
Miss Robson has just returned from
the States and is busy again here. There is always so much to do.
The Rues will be gone until next March.
The fellows from the 326th
come over now and then and we are always glad to have them come. It
is wonderful what all of you have done for us here, and we surely do
We have been having lots of rain
here. Yesterday we had such a heavy rain that the bridge coming into
the hospital washed away, and we are more or less marooned, as far as
getting any cars out is concerned. Our mission has a school about six
miles out from here, and five of our bridges there washed away.
We will be writing again in a few
days and shall be glad to hear from you again.
Mrs. Leland Mitchell
