1st June, 1946.
Miss Chisato Oye,
Registration No. 12994,
Tashme, B.C. Dear Madam:
We wish to acknowledge your letter of the 30th May, and note contents of same.
We appreciate the fact that the sale of your property at Mount Lehman is a matter of personal concern to you. The sale of properties was, however, carried out by this Department under instructions received from the Canadian Government at Ottawa on the basis of appraised valuations.
We wish to inform you that we are unable to make any change regarding this. However your remarks and your letter of protest will be placed on record.
Yours truly, Administration Department.
