December 17, 1941
There is very little I can tell you about this

The two stamps are most likely one of the 50c
Sun Yat Sens of 1940
- either Scott 386 unwatermarked or Scott 396 watermarked Yu.
The addressee's title was "Comradeship Leader" |
China Inland Mission.
This was probably a contact for a church support group for the mission.
The China Inland Mission was active in China from 1865 to 1953
