    In his letter, written from the King County Jail, Hirabayashi explains that he will soon go before the judge "to plead guilty or not guilty to the charges of refusing to register for evacuation and 3 curfew violations. When I plead not guilty (to a void law), they'll set a date for trial. It goes something like that. After that I'll be in a better position to know what's ahead of me, and what opportunities I'll have of seeing you and some of the others.

He also congratulates Eleanor on her promotion at her new job and discusses his trial preparations and meeting with his lawyers, Arthur (Art) Barnett and John Geisness. less
