Four short letters, a postcard, and a brief note from Tokugawa and two short letters from Mrs. Hoshina. Original stamped envelopes present. All letters are dated 1946 or 1947. English text (some envelopes addressed in Japanese). Tokugawa was President of the Japan's House of Peers at the time of this correspondence. Brunke had apparently performed some kindnesses for Tokugawa's daughter and was also supplying copies of Fortune Magazine to Tokugawa. The two letters from Mrs. Hoshina include invitations for Brunke to dine with Mrs. Hoshina and her father at his official residence, including a sketch-map indicating its location. Tokugawa thanks Brunke for giving him a ride and mentions his recovery from pneumonia. The postcard encourages Brunke to attend an exhibition at the Japan Industrial Club of paintings by Rokuo Arai (including a portrait of Tokugawa commissioned by the House of Peers).Also included is the The Official Gazette Extra [in English] for Japan's House of Peers on Aug. 31, 1946.
