Copy for Mr. Shears
File No. 11651
Tashme, B.C. Aug. 4th, 1944.
Mr. George Peters, 506 Royal Bank Building, Vancouver, B. C. Dear Sir:
Re: Catalogue No. 228 1108 Raymur Avenue 12/116/181
Your letter of June 21st informed me that my property consisting of 1108 Raymur Avenue was in the course of sale. Recently, I have been informed, by the caretaker, that he was notified by your Department that the house had been sold.
I do not think that it is fair not to have consulted me in regard to the valuation appraised on the said property and also whether or not it was my wish to dispose of same.
If and when such a property is sold, I think it only right that the Custodian should notify me of the amount for which it was sold without my asking for such a statement.
Although my protest will have very little weight in the matter, I am informing you that it was very much against my wishes to have the property sold.
Yours truly,
Reg. #03044
per "F Ono"
