Bunnosuke Fujino to Custodian's, 02 June 1944

Tashme, B. C. June 2, 1944.
Custodian's, 506 Royal Bank Bldg. Vancouver, B. C. Dear Sir:
In reply to your letter of May 10, 1944, File 8786. I have no intention of selling my land. Municipality of Delta. Lot 1, of NEĀ¼, Sec. 24, Tp. 4.
Since being evacuated from my farm and leaving a very good productive crop, I would like to know what happened to it. My family of seven, made a very good living on that farm so surely in wartime when everything is so expensive and shortage of fruits, etc., you didn't just let it go. So I imagine you must have made quite a sum off those crops. Kindly let me know what you did about this.
Yours truly, #12519
