    In his letter to Burt Fraser, the officer in charge at Fort Missoula, Matsushita requests that inmates who are eligible for rehearing be kept informed about when a chance for a new trial may arise. He states that several officials have come and gone without his case being heard and writes "Many internees, who were here with us last year and later transferred to south, had their rehearing over there and now united with their families in Relocation centers, while old timers like me who were destined to stay here seemed to have been left behind in the reunion of families.
