    In this letter written by Gordon Hirabayashi to Homer Morris, the Secretary for the Philadelphia branch of the American Friends Service Committee, Gordon shares his thoughts and recommendations regarding the process for relocating the Issei and Nesei evacuees. He writes, "You are right when you say that the chief hesitation for relocation is among the evacuees themselves. [...] All too often, it appears as though the WRA is merely pushing the release of evacuees, not successful resettlement." He ends the letter with a post script note regarding the decision of the Supreme Court saying, "I have just read the Portland Oregonian with the news that the Supreme Court have upheld our convictions. So I guess the government will call for my first three months, and in this case, they will have their say. I appreciate very deeply the efforts you have expounded for our cause. I shall never forget. I will be back for work soon.". less
