Letter from friend concerning admission to Yale

Description
In order to understand the circumstances of the rejection letter, Kinji wrote to a friend already at Yale University. The friend’s reply on August 13, 1945 stated that for the moment, Kinji’s chances of acceptance to Yale were dismal. Although the Chairman of Admissions personally did not agree with the extreme measures affecting Kinji, he had to comply with them. However, the letter contained suggestions from the Dean of Yale on how to work around these severe impediments.
