Kazuo Iwamoto to George Peters, 1944

Copy for Mr. Shears
George Peters,
Administration Dept.,
Dept. of the Secretary of State,
Vancouver, B. C. Dear Sir:
Referring to your letter of the July 7 instance, asking me to send to the LAND REGISTRY, TITLE No. 133785-E covering my property, which is on SALE and independently priced.
I hereby inform you that I have not got the Title here with me and I would like to know whether it is compulsory for us to send the Title? Would the sale of my property be completed whether the Title is in my possession? or not? I would like to keep my title if at all possible.
Yours truly,
"Kazuo Iwamoto"
Reg. No. 07499

Readers of these historical materials will encounter derogatory references to Japanese Canadians and euphemisms used to obscure the intent and impacts of the internment and dispossession. While these are important realities of the history, the Landscapes of Injustice Research Collective urges users to carefully consider their own terminological choices in writing and speaking about this topic today as we confront past injustice.
