UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF POLITICAL SCIENCE BERKELEY, CALIFORNIA January 13, 1943 Mr. C. Obata 5-9-D Central Utah W.R.A. Topaz, Utah Dear Mr. Obata: I am very much charmed with the lovely little painting that you have made of Topaz. It stands on my desk before me where I can continually admire it. The hill behind the settlement, with what seem to be the familiar streaks of snow, is especially charming. I can only think of one painful deficiency in the surroundings of Topaz and that is that it is doubtful that you have access to good trout streams! I hope that you may soon have access again to your favorite outdoor sport. Mrs. Barrows would wish to join with me in warm greetings to you and Mrs. Obata. Sincerely yours, David P. Barrows David P. Barrows DPB: PB
