Re: Hisajiro Shikatani, Reg. No. 03187, File 1044CLAIM FOR MISSING RADIO
This man has written to us as follows:
“I would like you to forward us the full credit on our radio which you last wrote us and said radio was stolen. on the account I would like to send by cheque of $85.00.”
From this we understand that Shikatani wishes us to send him $85.00 in recompense for the loss of his radio.
We have written Shikatani as shown by the attached copy of the letter.

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.
