File No. 2316
Reg. No. 08472
Greenwood, B. C. May 26, 1946.
Mr. George Peters, 506 Royal Bank Building, Vancouver, B. C. Dear Sir:
This is in reply to your letter of May 29th.
I agree with the price of $1,250.00 based on valuation issued from Ottawa on my property at 314 Mercer Street, New Westminster . But before I forward this Title to you I would like to know whether the payment will be made in full at the time of the sale. And secondly whether I could have the net proceeds forwarded to me directly and immediately after the necessary transactions are completed. Please give me a reply at your convenience.
Another thing I would like to make clear, at the same time, is about my other property at 1031 Royal Avenue, New Westminster . On this property I would like to get a net proceeds of $5,000.00 and not a cent less. If my request as to this property is not met at your office and is sold at a lowe price I will take the matter up to Court.
Your consideration and endeavour to meet my request to your utmost will be greatly appreciated.
Yours truly Reg. #08472.
