copy for Mr. Shears
Midway, B.C. February 11, 1947.
File No. 9858 George Peters Dear Sir:
Your letter of February 5, 1947, you have stated that you have sent me my sewing machine, but this was marked "M Okano" which belongs to my mother so please send me my own sewing machine. This M. Okano was sent to me on May 11, 1943 by freight.
You have sent me my balance of $37.15 which is my entire balance. It is not satisfactory to me so I cannot accept this cheque at present so I am sending you back this cheque #5930.
Yours truly,
Mrs. Koito Okano
Reg. No. 03912

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.
