Letter from a detainee
Author W has a lawyer but her daughter went into debt paying the $500 a month cost, and she complains that the lawyer did nothing and "robbed" her. She is a single mother, and her children also cannot afford to send her money to buy food from the commissary, given that the center does not "give good food." The last three pages consist of colored-in coloring pages, the first with a hand-printed recitation of the Biblical 23rd Psalm and a blessing for the Allies.
