17 Melbourne Avenue, Westmount, Montreal 6, Quebec October 2, 1946
Mr. George Peters
Department of the Secretary of State,
Administration Department,
506 Royal Bank Bldg., Hastings and Granville Vancouver, B.C. Dear Sir:
This is to acknowledge your cheque amounting to Forty-One Dollars and Fourteen Cents ($41.14) as requested by you. You also mention in this letter that 3 boxes of chinawares and 1 Washing Machine left at Mrs. Y Kariya's home are lost.
I would like to say that for the past four and one half years I have been on a self-supporting basis and am quite low financially. If there is any way in which I can make a claim for these lost goods, I would like to know in which manner I should go about in getting compensation for the lost goods, since there were left in your care.
Yours very truly,
File No 9575
Reg. No. 03393
Oct. 8/16 - It was decided not to reply to this letter at present.”
"Geo. P"

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.
