Dear Sis & Co. –
Just a line to let you know where I am. Enjoying good health even tho it is hot down this way. Enclosing some Japanese occupational money for the Boys think they will enjoy receiving. Most of it is for the Philippines but some is Dutch money. The value is
Centavos = ½ ₵
100 centavos = 1 peso
1 peso = 50₵
I am not sure as to the value of the Dutch money but I think a gulden is the same as our dollar.
Be sure to let me know where Jake is sent. This is someplace, all shot up, in almost complete ruins. Our next stop is Japan.

Hey, that money looks in great condition. May not be worth much as collectors items now, but this strikes me a museum-quality stuff.
Must have been so depressing: “This is someplace, all shot up, in almost complete ruins.”
