Envelope for Picture Postcards of
Miss Sachiko Nikko and Her Accessories

Below is a rough translation of the Japanese printed on the envelope:

Picture Postcards of Miss Sachiko Nikko
Goodwill Messenger to America

More precisely, the doll is described as a torei messenger. The Japanese word torei indicates an expression of gratitude or goodwill in response to another person's gift. In this case, Tochigi Prefecture is expressing its gratitude to America for the many American dolls received in 1927.
