Reed, a student at the Sheldon School in Grand Rapids, Michigan, writes that his art class has been studying Kuniyoshi and says that they plan to buy one of his prints with fifty cents earned for "having the most mothers at our P.T.A. meeting." He also asks various questions about Kuniyoshi's family and his impressions of America.
