File #6660
P.O. Box 874 Hope, B.C. June 17, 1946
The Office of the Custodian 506 Royal Bank Building Hastings & Granville Sts., Vancouver, B.C. Dear Sir:
I received your letter dated 5th inst. containing a cheque of which I am sorry I have to return to you.
In this opportunity I wish to register my resentment regarding method of disposal of my property.
In your letter you mentioned that you have sent to me a statement up to May 30th, 1944, which did not reach to me.
Since I left the major portion of my household and farm chattels vested in the Custodian, I would like to know how they were disposed of.
Will you kindly send me a copy of the statement of my account up to May 30th, 1944.
In regard to my interest in the Maple Ridge Co-operative Produce Exchange, I am a shareholder but do not remember correctly re share and I would suggest you look into the share book of the Co-op. which is in your possession.
Yours truly,
P.S. Also lease send me a detailed statement of auction sale at Haney which netted $36.81 for my chattels.

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.
