I Kawai to Mr. F G Shears, 19 December 1946

Reg. No. 01729 7399 B Denoramville Montreal, P.Q. Dec. 19, 1946
Mr. F G Shears 506 Royal Bank Bldg. Vancouver, B.C. Dear Sir:
I received my estate list which you sent me. When I recieved my list I found out that my estate was sold without notice.
From last June my wife Yae Kawai got heart sickness and could not write about this to you. She cannot get up yet. I am suffering in spiritual and economical ways. I cannot write a detailed letter now but I will write later. I am not satisfied in the way it was sold without notice and also the price.
Yours truly, Reg. No. 01729



I Kawai to Mr. F G Shears, 19 December 1946

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.
